South Africa says has suspended Iran oil imports

PRETORIA - South Africa has suspended almost all of its oil imports from Iran and intends to abide by a US request to significantly drop its supplies from the state, a senior diplomat said on Thursday.
"[To my knowledge], no Iranian oil is flowing into our country," South African Deputy Foreign Minister Ebrahim Ebrahim told a news conference.
"If there is any, it is very little."
South Africa is on a State Department list of 12 countries that buy Iranian oil and could be subject to US sanctions unless they significantly cut purchases.
