Egyptian FM on Saudi TV

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit called on Israel to show flexibility in the negotiations to release IDF soldier Gilad Schalit and to pay the price Hamas demands for the release of the soldier. In an interview with Al Arabiya television, Aboul Gheit said "Israel should not exaggerate its demands. It must pay the price needed to close a deal. We have told Israel that if it wants to receive the soldier, it must pay the price the Palestinians are demanding."
