South Africa is also ready to resume discussions with the IAEA on safeguarding the Valindaba semi-commercial enrichment plant, but not the Y-plant, saying that its new enrichment technology may be "compromised" if the Y-plant were open to international inspection.

 Background Notes: South Africa
Today, South Africa is an industrializing country with most of the characteristics associated with developing economies-a division between formal and informal sectors, uneven distribution of wealth and income, a dependence on commodity exports, and a legacy of government intervention.
South Africa's economy has slowed despite a rise in the price of its key export, gold, from $35 an ounce in the 1960s to an average of $130 in the 1970s and $450 in 1980-1985.
South Africa ignored an advisory judgment of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in 1950 that any change in the status of the Namibian territory must receive the assent of the United Nations as the successor to the League of Nations.

One of the problems facing the KZP is certainly that it is understaffed in relation to the population and area that it is expected to patrol, as is the case for the police force in South Africa generally.
Speaking to Africa Watch on January 27, 1993, Gavin Woods, Executive Director of the Inkatha Institute, stated that he had not heard specific refutations of the ANC's allegations and that the ANC might therefore perhaps be given "the benefit of the doubt" regarding allegations of police misbehavior in Esikhawini.

 SSRN-Is the Multilateral Financial Embargo of 1986-1991 on South Africa Effective? by Ghada Mohamed
The paper concludes that there was an inverse relationship between the degrees of the response of the financial embargo as an international reaction to the human rights violations of the apartheid system on the one hand, and on the interest rate on the other.
In line with the assumptions of the model, whites - the group with the capital - were the most affected by the blockade, with their income being directly affected by the imposition of the financial embargo.
In addition, this research presents a simplified empirical study that concludes by reiterating the results of the theoretical study: that the financial embargo that was imposed on South Africa between 1986 and 1991 was effective in achieving its desired goal.
