Yemen proposes release of 200 prisoners from each side of conflict before end of Ramadan

Head of the National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs Abdul Qadir al-Murtadha has said that “Due to delays in the procedures for the implementation of the prisoner exchange agreement, we have submitted a new offer to the other party through the United Nations.”

In a tweet on Sunday, Al-Murtadha said: “The offer, which we made to the United Nations, requires the release of 200 prisoners from each side before Eid al-Fitr.”

The presentation was considered a positive introduction to the full implementation of the agreement.

“We are awaiting the response of the other side that we hope will be positive,” he said
