Syrian government wants prisoners swap with the rebels
The Syrian government is open for prisoners to exchange with the rebels. This could ensure that both sides are preparing for peace talks to attend.
“We are always ready to take captured to share for people who have been kidnapped by terrorist groups, especially now in the context of the efforts for the upcoming meeting in Astana”, says the government.
Delegations of both parties by Kazakhstan invited to Wednesday and Thursday in Astana, again to talk about the crisis in Syria. On 20 February in Geneva, under the leadership of the UN also peace talks are planned. The rebels have not yet commented on the gesture of the Syrian government.
Earlier this month the government and rebel groups already have dozens of female prisoners and hostages, some of them with their children, in the province of Hama in the northwest of Syria exchanged.
