Action must be taken to address the Iranian threat before it is too late, Czech Defense Minister and Vice Premier Martin Barták warned during a Tuesday panel at the Herzliya Conference concerning the EU's global responsibilites.

Barták stated that it seemed as if not enough was being done to address the Iranian issue, adding that Europe draws a red line where Israel’s security is concerned.

The visiting defense minister also stressed the importance of cooperation between the European Union and the US on a range of issues, many of them pertaining to the Middle East.

The Czech Republic, he said, sees itself as Israel’s partner in the war on terror.
