KABUL (AP) — Afghan businessmen have vowed to stop doing business with neighbouring Iran until it stops blocking thousands of fuel trucks from crossing into Afghanistan.

The Afghan Chamber of Commerce issued a resolution on Tuesday protesting the blockade, which has caused fuel prices to spike.

The unofficial ban on fuel trucks crossing the Iran-Afghanistan border began in late December with about 2,500 trucks stuck at three crossings.

The blockade has prompted protests in Kabul and in Herat province, which borders Iran.

An Afghan political party has collected more than 200,000 signatures and fingerprints of angry Kabul residents on a more than 300 metre-long petition protesting the fuel truck blockade.
