British Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed the release of IDF soldier Gilad Schalit on Tuesday and said that the people of Britain share the joy felt by the Schalit family.

“I know that people across Britain will share in the joy and relief felt by Gilad Schalit and his family today, he said. "I can only imagine the heartache of the last five years, and I am full of admiration for the courage and fortitude which Schalit and his family have shown through his long cruel and unjustified captivity."

"I congratulate Prime Minister [Binyamin] Netanyahu and everyone involved for bringing him home safely, and hope this prisoner exchange will bring peace a step closer," Cameron added.

“Britain will continue to stand by Israel in defeating terrorism.  We remain strongly committed to the cause of peace in the Middle East – with Israel and a Palestinian state living side by side in security.  We will continue to work for direct negotiations to achieve that end,” he said.
