Sweden on Thursday ordered an end to all trade with South Africa in one of the harshest actions so far by an industrialized nation against apartheid. Foreign Minister Sten Andersson said the Swedish government hopes that the decision will influence the United Nations to recommend binding sanctions. He told reporters that when Sweden banned new investments in South Africa in 1979, "people said that would make no difference, have no effect . . . but in fact many countries followed us."
