France "has not forgotten Gilad Schalit," French Foreign Affairs Minister Alain Juppe said on Friday in a special communique released a day before the Schalit family marks five years since their son was captured by Hamas.

"On the eve of the sad anniversary of the fifth year of Gilad Schalit's captivity, I want to reiterate that the situation of our compatriot, held in defiance of the most basic principles of international humanitarian law, is unacceptable," Juppe said in the statement. "It is also unique: Gilad Schalit is, today, the French hostage who has been held in captivity the longest."

The French foreign minister added, "We've mobilized our partners and continue our work tirelessly for [Schalit's] release, in coordination with other ongoing mediation efforts."
