Petroleum Minister Osama Kamal blamed Egypt's
diesel fuel crisis on smuggling operations.
The ministry has provided Wataniya gas stations with mobile gas
stations to meet the consumers' needs, Kamal told Channel One in a phone
call on Sunday.
He urged citizens and prosecutors to join hands to prevent smuggling of
subsidized fuel, especially diesel fuel.
A number of trucks loaded with smuggled subsidized diesel fuel were
seized in the past days in several governorates in Egypt.
