The delegations of the legitimate Yemeni government and the Houthis exchanged lists of detainees and prisoners within the context of a swap deal agreed upon at the Sweden talks on Tuesday.
The government’s delegation presented a list of 8,200 names while the Houthi delegation presented a list of 7,000 names.
The agreement stipulates the release of all prisoners and detainees within 45 days of exchanging these lists.
On Monday, UN Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths said he would present a detailed settlement plan for Yemen in the next round of talks.
“We hope that the Yemeni parties will agree to hold a new round of negotiations at the beginning of the year,” Griffiths said.
