Prime Minister Ehud Olmert spoke on Wednesday evening with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who telephoned in order to receieve updates on the situation in the Gaza Strip. The latter said that he had spoken with both Syrian President Bashar Assad and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and had urged them to assist as much as possible in releasing IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit. Olmert said the PA was doing nothing to either bring about the release of Shalit or to halt the firing of Kassam rockets at Israeli communities. Olmert also spoke today with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and thanked him for Egypt's assistance in the efforts to lower tensions and to bring about the release of Shalit.
