GERMANY, the United Kingdom, France and Italy have agreed on the following conditions and conditions for compliance with this transfer and the measures that result from it, taking into account the agreement already reached in principle on the transfer of the German territory of the Sudetenland to Germany, and, through this agreement, they each take responsibility for the steps necessary to achieve it. : The British people expected an imminent war and Chamberlain`s “state gesture” was initially applauded. He was greeted as a hero by the royal family and invited to the balcony of Buckingham Palace before submitting the agreement to the British Parliament. The general positive reaction quickly re-established despite the royal patronage. However, there was resistance from the beginning. Clement Attlee and labor rejected the deal in alliance with the two Conservative MPs Duff Cooper and Vyvyan Adams, who until then had been seen as a hard and reactionary element in the Conservative party. The Munich quotation in foreign policy debates is also common in the 21st century. [107] During negotiations on the Iran nuclear deal by Secretary of State John Kerry, a Republican representative from Texas called the negotiations “worse than Munich.” In a speech in France, Kerry himself referred to Munich for military action in Syria: “This is our munich moment.” [108] Chamberlain`s travels to Germany threatened not only to disrupt his plans, but also to steal his thunder. Yet Hitler was well aware that the Munich Accords offered the best chance of achieving his goals without an early war. He had reached an agreement setting out a timetable and conditions for the acquisition by the Nazis of the German-speaking space of Czechoslovakia, the Sudetenland. And he had convinced Hitler to sign a sheet of paper saying that the two men were determined to “continue our efforts to eliminate the possible sources of difference and thus contribute to the guarantee of peace in Europe.” …

The solution to the Czechoslovakian problem that has just been found is, in my opinion, only the prelude to a larger colony in which all Europe can find peace. This morning I had another meeting with the German Chancellor, Mr. Hitler, and this is the document that bears his name, as well as mine. Some of you may have already heard what it contains, but I`d just like to read it to you: ` … We consider the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German naval agreement as a symbol of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war again. [96] The New York Times headline on the Munich accord was”Hitler receiving less than his claims from the Sudetenland” and reported that a “joyful crowd” had applauded Daladier on his return to France and that Chamberlain had been “savagely applauded” upon his return to the United Kingdom. [54] “Munich” (the agreement signed by Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler) entered the English language as a synonym for weakness, and historians continue to debate whether it would have been wiser for Britain to risk war rather than force Czechoslovakia to abandon the Sudetenland to Hitler.
