Asked whether the U.S. administration informed the Israeli government its concerns about the seriousness of some of the prisoners exchange deal that included, or opposing their release, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Toner, "We have done both."
"I do not want to dive a lot to talk about the reasons for our concern .. I said that we expressed our concern in relation to both matters."

Said Jay Carney, spokesman for President Barack Obama "We are delighted to return Gilad Shalit to his family, with regard to the peace process in general is important for us to facilitate the return of all party negotiations, rather than make it more difficult."
Carney stressed that "Each Party shall take measures to return to the negotiating table."
