Sweden to go ahead with s african trade sanctions

Swedens ruling Social Democratic Party gave full power to the government to decree unilateral trade sanctions against South Africa Prime Minister Ingvar Calrsson said

Carlsson told a news conference the party decided the fight against apartheid took priority over Swedens traditional policy of only adopting sanctions with the backing of the UN Security Council
