Jordan has agreed to host a meeting in the Kingdom next week between the representatives of the Yemeni government and the Ansar Allah movement to discuss progress in a prisoner swap deal, an official announced on Saturday. 

Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Sufian Al Qudah said the request was made by the Amman-based Office of the Special Envoy of the Secretary General for Yemen.

In a press statement, Qudah said that Jordan's approval for holding the meeting in Amman comes in line with its policy supporting efforts to end the Yemeni crisis.


This is the second meeting Jordan agrees to host for Yemen rivals. The first took place last month to discuss a deal involving 15,000 prisoners.
