March 7, 2019

The President of the International Committee of Red Cross, Peter Maurer, said that the committee was ready to exchange detainees within hours to broker a ceasefire in the war affected country of Yemen. However, he said that despite them being ready for the exchange in hours their plans were being delayed due to political interferences. The President also said that he hoped to see a decent number of acceptances from both the sides so that they could proceed towards the first bunch of releases and exchanges.
