The World : Oslo Curbs S. Africa Trade

Norway approved measures to restrict trade with South Africa, including licensing of all trade and a total ban on imports of South African fruit and vegetables. The Oslo government, welcoming moves by the U.S. Congress to impose sanctions against South Africa to protest its system of racial segregation, said it will also introduce compulsory registration of Norwegian ships calling at South African ports. One anti-apartheid group charges that Norwegian tankers supply at least one-third of Pretoria’s oil.
