Pakistan–South Africa relations
Pakistan–South Africa relations refers to the current and historical relationship between the Republic of South Africa and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Both are former British possessions and full members of the Commonwealth of Nations
Due to embargoes imposed against South Africa by Commonwealth of Nations, the two nations did not establish official diplomatic relations until 1994, after the end of apartheid in South Africa. Relations between the two nations are cordial and amiable, and South Africa exports US$240 million worth of goods to Pakistan on a yearly basis. Pakistan exports slightly less to South Africa (US$210 million), with major items including cotton yarn, woven fabrics, leather, rice and textiles.
In 2002, Pakistan imposed its first ever punitive penalty for dumping on South African tin imports.
