In a statement, the syndicate asked all drivers to de-escalate the situation and put the nation’s interests and people first, citing the global economic crisis as the reason.

It stated that the truck drivers’ demands are legitimate and constitutional in light of the increase in oil prices. However, they said that the strike should not exploit the needs and demands of the country.

The syndicate said that it is waiting for solutions from the competent authorities in hopes of suspending the strike and finding a suitable solution. It also asked workers in the transportation sector to present their demands to competent authorities in a civilized manner.
