The Houthi group on Thursday expressed willingness to start instantly prisoner swap with the Yemeni internationally-recognized government and Arab coalition, under UN observation, to avoid COVID-19 spread.
"If they were really serious in implementing anything in order for coronavirus [be avoided], why the prisoners – whose lists had been co-approved with the aggression's mercenaries 30 days ago – have not been released?" member of the Houthi Supreme Political Council tweeted.
"Where is the response to the UN Secretary-General's call in this regard?" Mohamed Ali al-Houthi added.
"We're ready to begin prisoner swap as of Friday or Saturday, in accordance with all what was agreed to in Jordan under the sponsorship of the UN and its envoy" Martin Griffiths.
"Countries of the American-British-Saudi-Emirati aggression and allies are responsible for any health deterioration resulted from non-response to this humanitarian issue," the Houthi official said.
At the closing of 7-day meetings for the Yemeni government-Houthi prisoner committee in Amman, the UN and ICRC announced on 16 February an agreement between two rivals on a detailed plan to carry out the first massive exchange of prisoners.
