The Schalit family will meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu only if he is ready to tell them that there are new developments in negotiations with Hamas for their son, kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit, said one of the leaders of the "freedom march" in an interview with Army Radio on Friday.

"The family has marched 200 kilometers to hear something new, namely, that negotiations are reopening, because there is already an offer on the table," Yoel Marshak told Army Radio.

Netanyahu is scheduled to visit the family in the protest tent they are staying in outside of the prime minister's residence on Friday afternoon upon his return from a US visit.
