The Prime Minister said:" Legal government had informed the ICRC and other International organizations that it was ready to 100% prisoners swap deal, but Houthi militia didn't care about prisoners and their families' suffering".

The Head of the ICRC's mission expressed thanks for the Prime Minister and his government's cooperation and positive response to the ICRC's requests to visit jails and inspects prisoners' conditions.

Feit said:" We do appreciate the legal government's support for the ICRC's efforts aimed to get the detainees released ever since the first visit to the Prime Minister in the interim capital Aden until now".
