Expectations of the prisoners’ and detainees’ agreement on the second day of Sweden's talks have been reduced, as later it is cleared only to talk about "exchange of lists of names".

The UN special envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths said Thursday that the two parties agreed to the exchange of prisoners and detainees.

Griffiths told reporters after the first opening session that there was a ready agreement to exchange thousands of prisoners.

A Houthi negotiator said on Friday “that there is a primary agreement that was signed before the traveling to Sweden," speaking that there will be committees to receive prisoners’ lists from both sides."

There is a consensus that allows the exchange of lists as a first and a small step in a far road of the Yemeni consultations in Sweden.
