Defense Minister Ehud Barak addressed the prisoner exchange deal for the release of Gilad Schalit which was approved by the cabinet overnight Sunday, saying "today we took a great stride forward on the path to bringing Gilad back."

Barak suggested that "restraint" be exercised until Schalit was safely back in Israel.

He praised the negotiating team that came to an agreement with Hamas and praised Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for exhibiting "leadership, bravery and responsibility," that eventually led to the signing of the deal and its approval in the cabinet.
