Address by Adolf Hitler, Chancellor of the Reich, before the Reichstag.

Mr Speaker, some weeks ago the people of the Sudetenland took to the streets in protest.

President Edvard Beneš has resisted the wish of the people to take their destiny into their own hands.

Mr Speaker, intervening in another country's affairs should not be undertaken save in quite exceptional circumstances.

That is why we've always been clear that the use of force would require three tests to be met.

First, demonstrable need.

The Benes regime has ignored the demand that it stop discriminating against the people of the Sudetenland.

Second, regional support.

In recent days I have spoken with leaders from Italy and Spain who support our demands.

Mr Speaker, the third and essential condition was that there should be a clear legal base.

France and the United Kingdom have agreed to the Munich Agreement.

We have no further territorial demands.

There will be no occupation force of any form, on any part of Libyan territory.
