Secretary of State John Kerry held a surprise meeting Sunday with his Iranian counterpart, Javad Zarif, in Munich–the city made infamous for “appeasement” after the western powers granted Hitler part of Czechoslovakia in 1938. Kerry and Zarif met as Iran’s leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamanei, said that he would “go along with the agreement in the making,” which gives Iran 80% of its initial demands and allows it to stop just short of becoming a nuclear power, according to reports.
Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet that he intended to resist the deal that Kerry and Zarif were striking. “We will continue to act and to lead the international efforts against the arming of Iran with nuclear weapons and we will act in every way to foil the bad and dangerous agreement that would cast a heavy cloud over the future of Israel,” he said, according to the Times of Israel.
Kerry promised in 2013 that no deal would be better than a bad deal.
