Alsahwa Net- The Yemeni government welcomed on Saturday a call by the United Nations (UN) Special Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths to release all prisoners to avoid risks of the COVID-19.
Yemen’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote on its Twitter account that the government welcomes the call to release all prisoners as the action is purely a humanitarian step.
“We renew our call to implement what has been agreed upon during the last meeting in Jordan with no procrastination or condition,” the ministry said.
It reaffirmed its readiness to the prisoner-exchange agreement implementation if the Houthis showed real intention to do so.
Griffiths called on Friday Yemen’s parties to release all conflict-related detainees to prevent risks of the COVID-19 per commitments of the parties to the prisoner exchange agreement.
