Oil Tanker Association agree to end strike after successful talks with govt

The second session of talks between government authorities and All Pakistan Oil Tankers Association (APOTA) on Wednesday reportedly proved successful after the APOTA members were assured that their demand for an increase in freight fares will be considered, DawnNews reported.

The oil tankers’ operators are expected to address a press conference shortly, in which they are likely to announce an end to their three-day long strike.

Long queues of motorists were witnessed at filling stations across the country following a severe shortage of petrol as the ongoing strike by APOTA entered its third day.
