Iranian opposition NCRI President Maryam Rajavi hailed the truck driver’s massive strike and called on all Iranians, especially the youth, to express solidarity with the truckers. Mrs. Rajavi also called on relevant international organization, labor and drivers’ unions in various countries to rise in support of Iran’s truck drivers.

The regime's attempt to stop the strike of truck drivers went futile. As the drivers resumed their strike, the head of the regime's transportation union, Mohammad Khanbalooki, claimed that more than 70 percent of truck drivers’ demands had been met and their major problems had been resolved. He said that all the drivers are aware and know that they should not allow their demands to be used as a means by the enemies of the country…most of those who turned the truck drivers’ gathering into turmoil were from the PMOI who had infiltrated among the drivers…. and all truck drivers have been informed of the PMOI’s attempt for misusing this atmosphere…the routes for the truck drivers in country’s roads are open and 90% of truck drivers have received their bill of loading (state websites - July 23).
The Iranian Resistance salutes striking truck drivers, and calls on brave Iranian youths across the country to show their solidarity with them. It also urges the International Labor Organization and other relevant international bodies and trade unions and syndicates of truck drivers in different countries to support the goals of striking drivers in Iran.
