U.S. Acts Against Norway

Associated Press

Commerce Secretary Malcolm Baldrige, claiming that Norway is defying an international prohibition against killing whales, announced steps today that could lead to a ban on Norwegian fish products.

Baldrige sent President Reagan a “certification” that Norway, in catching Minke whales, was undermining efforts by the International Whaling Commission to protect the mammals. Under U.S. law, Reagan has 60 days to decide the next step, which could include an embargo of all or part of Norway’s fish-product imports to the United States.
