Godongwana stated that there is unlikely to be any negative repercussions from the US as a result of the resolution.

Resolution of the Dispute:

According to Bloomberg News, Godongwana confirmed in an interview that several actions were taken to ensure a normal and cordial relationship with the United States.

While specific details were not provided, it is clear that efforts were made to address the allegations and maintain a positive relationship between the two countries.

Denial of Allegations and Apology:

South Africa’s government has consistently denied the claims made by the US Ambassador, Reuben Brigety, regarding the alleged weapons supply to Russia.

After a meeting between Brigety and South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor, the ambassador admitted to crossing the line and issued an unreserved apology for his statements.

Previous Actions Taken:

The South African Finance Ministry’s statement noted that action had been taken when the matter was initially brought to the attention of South African officials.

This response occurred during a meeting between Godongwana and US Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen in February, indicating that measures were already in place to address the issue.

Clarification and Lack of Response:

The US State Department referred to a tweet by Ambassador Brigety, where he acknowledged and corrected any misimpressions left by his public remarks.

However, the South African Finance Ministry did not provide additional comments or responses to requests for further clarification.

Analysis:

The resolution of the dispute between South Africa and the United States over the alleged weapons supply to Russia is a significant development.

The denial of the allegations by South Africa’s government and the subsequent apology from the US Ambassador indicate a diplomatic effort to address the issue and maintain a positive relationship.

The statements from Finance Minister Godongwana suggest that the resolution has been successful and that South Africa does not anticipate facing any negative consequences from the United States.

This outcome highlights the importance of diplomatic efforts and open communication in resolving disputes between countries.
