Head of Yemen’s National Committee for Prisoners’ affairs, Abdul Qader Murtada, revealed the reasons behind the failure of the recent negotiations held in Jordan and aimed at reaching a new agreement on the prisoners’ release.
Murtada stressed that the Saudi-led aggression forces set new conditions and prevented any progress in the negotiations, adding that the UN did not exert enough pressure on them to facilitate the agreement.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led Coalition, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis have been killed or injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
