Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon urged his American counterpart Chuck Hagel not to ease up sanctions on Iran in a meeting between the two on Tuesday.

"Any relief in sanctions will lead to the collapse of the sanctions regime," he said, warning that easing the economic pressure on Tehran will allow it to continue enriching weapons-grade uranium.

"We must not fall into the trap of easing up on sanctions as a trust-building measure before the Iranians meet the demands set to them," he said.
