Labor sanctions by nurses continue for a third day on Wednesday, after talks with Treasury officials ended without agreement shortly before 10 p.m. on Tuesday.

The Treasury called on nurses to return to work after a work dispute over their conditions and salary had kept them on a limited schedule for two days.

In a statement, the Treasury stated that it had offered “a number of offers meant to solve the dispute and our differences with the nurses,” without mentioning what the offers in question were specifically.

The Treasury said it was responsible for maintaining the entire health system and the economy as a whole, and could not afford to give in to “exaggerated demands.”
