Argentina has handed Nelson Mandela's eldest daughter, Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, credentials as South Africa's ambassador to Buenos Aires, the foreign ministry said Monday.

"The Argentine government has given diplomatic credentials to Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, as new ambassador of the Republic of South Africa to Argentina," a ministry statement said.

Mandela-Dlamini, 53, is a businesswoman and the first of anti-apartheid hero Mandela's surviving children to go into public life. She is a daughter of Mandela, 93, and his second wife Winnie Mandela.

Bilateral trade between South Africa and Argentina is worth about $1.3 billion.
