To insist that any UN ceasefire resolution would include release of soldiers.
By JPOST.COM STAFF
The family of Ehud Goldwasser, who, together with Eldad Regev, was kidnapped by Hizbullah three weeks ago, was scheduled to meet on Thursday night with New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Goldwasser's wife and parents, speaking in a press conference on Thursday, said that any UN resolution on the Israeli-Lebanese conflict must include a clause calling for the release of the kidnapped soldiers, Army Radio reported.
The three were expected to meet with officials in the US State Department on Friday.
With the help of the Jewish Federation and American politicians, they hoped to ensure that the issue of the soldiers' release would not be delayed to a later date.
The Goldwasser family was also fighting for the release of Cpl. Gilad Shalit, who was apprehended by Palestinians some five weeks ago, precipitating the large-scale IDF incursion into the Gaza Strip.
