The World

Commerce Secretary Malcolm Baldrige formally notified President Reagan that Norway is ignoring a whaling ban and harvesting the Minke whale, an act that could lead to trade sanctions against Norwegian fish products. Under U.S. law, Baldrige will now recommend to Reagan what sanctions he thinks are appropriate, and the President then has 60 days to notify Congress of his proposed actions. Meanwhile, Sweden appealed to the Soviet Union, Japan and Norway to stop violating a commercial whaling ban.
