Diplomatic delegations in Sweden discuss four major issues in first round of meetings

SANAA, Dec. 7 (YPA) – The first closed-door meetings between the two sides of the Yemeni conflict have begun on Thursday in Sweden. The teams were reportedly divided into four groups to discuss the issues at hand.

UN envoy Martin Griffiths had held two separate meetings with the heads of the two delegations in order to discuss the agenda, noting that the agreement had divided the first negotiating session into four groups.

According to international media, the first group was tasked to discuss the reunification of the Yemeni central bank and ending the financial division between Sanaa and Aden.

The second group was tasked to discuss military truce and halting the military escalation, and the third group to debating the reopening of Sana’a International Airport to civilian flights. The fourth group discussed the exchange of prisoners according to a pact that all parties have signed.
