Ashton calls for Red Cross visits to Gilad Schalit

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman met with European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Sunday evening in Jerusalem.
At a press conference following their meeting, Ashton expressed sympathy for the family of kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit and called for his release.
"I can understand the great pain of Aviva and Noam Schalit after four years since the kidnapping," said Ashton.
She also called upon the Hamas leadership to allow the Red Cross to visit Schalit in his captivity.
