Shalit and Palestinian prisoners

"I warmly welcome the news that Gilad Shalit will soon be able to return home after five years of captivity putting and end to the long ordeal that he and his family have endured. During my visits to Israel I personally shared my concerns and expressed the support of the EU and of the international community at large to Gilad’s family.
