NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israeli Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin has said that the government of Benjamin Netanyahu is responsible for securing the release of captured soldier Gilad Shalit.

He was quoted by the Israeli radio as saying on Wednesday night that German, French, and Egyptian efforts in this regard had failed.

He added that the present time was not for statements but for achieving progress in freeing Shalit especially when he has entered his fifth year in captivity with no success in finding him.

Rivlin was speaking at the tent pitched by Shalit’s parents in front of the house of Netanyahu in Jerusalem.
