The successful negotiation of exchanging 100 Russian war detainees for 100 Ukrainian war prisoners has been announced by the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE’s foreign ministry was cited in a report by state news agency WAM regarding the development.
The foreign ministry of the United Arab Emirates said that this is the third time this year that successful mediation efforts between Russia and Ukraine have been made. The prisoner swap underscores the UAE’s dedication to promoting communication, diplomacy, and de-escalation in the two countries’ protracted war.
In a Telegram post, the Russian Ministry of Defence recognised the United Arab Emirates’ “humanitarian mediation”. Both the Ukrainian organisation in charge of regulating prisoner-of-war swaps and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy acknowledged the exchange. The cooperative endeavour emphasises how crucial international collaboration is to settling disputes and pursuing a peaceful conclusion.
The UAE, which is known for its proficiency in diplomacy, has been instrumental in promoting communication between parties involved in conflict. The UAE’s reputation as a good mediator in regional and international disputes is further enhanced by the successful release of war prisoners.
The United Arab Emirates’ Foreign Ministry underlined the need for diplomatic measures to resolve the current situation and restated its demand for de-escalation. Through persistent attempts to bring disputing parties to the negotiating table, the nation has demonstrated its commitment to fostering peaceful outcomes.
