UPDATE: The All Pakistan Oil Tankers Association held another session of talks with the government and this time it has proved successful. The Oil Tankers Association are set to announce the end to the three-day long strike in a press conference shortly.
It has been reported by Dawn News that the government authorities have assured the association members that their demand for an increase in freight fares will be taken into consideration.
Karachites can now heave a sigh of relief as it is now business as usual.
