Qatar Welcomes Prisoner Exchange Process in Yemen

The State of Qatar has welcomed the prisoner exchange process between the Yemeni government and the Houthis, considering it a humanitarian gesture and a positive step that would pave the way for a comprehensive political solution.

In a statement today, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed the State of Qatar’s aspiration that this process would contribute to strengthening efforts aimed at fortifying the truce and establishing sustainable peace, in a way that achieves the aspirations of the brotherly Yemeni people for security and development.

The Ministry renewed the State of Qatar’s position that calls for a solution to the Yemeni crisis based on the Gulf initiative and relevant Security Council resolutions, especially Resolution No. 2216.

The Ministry also expressed Qatar’s appreciation for the role of the Office of the Special Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General for Yemen and the International Committee of the Red Cross in sponsoring prisoner exchanges.
