With the end of South Africa’s international isolation in 1994, the country resumed participation in many international organizations from which it was excluded in the final years of apartheid. The most important organization is the United Nations, in which South Africa reclaimed its seat in June 1994. In the same month the country became the 51st member of the Commonwealth of Nations after an absence of 33 years. In 1995 South Africa played a pivotal role in the unanimous decision of the 175 countries of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty to renew the pact permanently.
