NOUAKCHOTT - Britain called on Israel to build on the momentum provided by the release of its soldier Gilad Schalit to advance peace talks with the Palestinians.

Foreign Secretary William Hague welcomed the release of Schalit after more than five years in captivity in the Gaza Strip as part of a thousand-for-one prisoner exchange.

"It provides a glimmer of hope in an often bleak scene that a successful negotiation can be carried out on this difficult subject," Hague told Reuters during a trip to North Africa.

"I know it is important for Israelis and Palestinians to return to negotiations on the Middle East peace process and to approach it in the same way," he added.

"In particular, we believe Israel should be ready to make a more decisive offer than Israeli leaders have made in recent years on the peace process to give talks a chance of success."
