KARACHI: The Oil Tankers and Contractors Association has announced a countrywide strike across Pakistan on Thursday.

On the other hand, the Oil Tankers Owners Association distanced itself from the strike, adding that they would continue to supply oil to Karachi and other depots as per the usual routine.
