Question: What is the status of the remaining Yemeni detainees? What is the delay in resettling them?
Answer: We do not comment on ongoing bilateral negations with foreign governments. The President is committed to the closure of the Guantanamo Detention Facility and we continue to make progress on that effort. We recognize that addressing the issue of Yemeni detainees, as it is such a large detainee population, is very important to these efforts.
