The Ministry of Economy and Trade of the National Unity Government has called on traders and suppliers of medicines and basic commodities to work to stabilize prices, with an acceptable profit margin.

The ministry explained in a statement on Tuesday, the importance of stabilizing the prices of medicines and basic commodities, including "flour, rice, oil, sugar, milk, and infant formula", in supporting the economy and facilitating the cost of living for the citizen, and not exploiting the current conditions.

On the other hand, the ministry pledged to take all legal measures against violators by issuing the necessary decisions to ensure the stability and control of prices, and that it will work with all monitoring and security authorities to implement this.
