AMMAN: Yemen’s Saudi-backed government and Huthi rebels have made “important progress” during talks in Jordan on a troubled UN-brokered prisoner swap deal, mediators said Friday, reports AFP.

The huge prisoner exchange agreed in Stockholm in December is seen as a crucial confidence-building measure in the UN-led push to calm four years of devastating conflict.

After three days of talks in the Jordanian capital, a UN committee tasked with overseeing the swap said the warring sides had made “important progress in moving the release process forward”.

That headway included “providing additional information on the status of individuals included in the lists of prisoners”, it added.
