Mali does not recognize the Republic of Kosovo, a statement from the Republic of Mali presidency has said.

The statement issued on Thursday noted there was a document circulating around the world which was indicating that Mali "had recognized the Republic of Kosovo."

"The presidency would wish to categorically deny this falsehood which intends to tarnish the image of Mali," the statement said.

"Consequently, the Malian presidency would wish to inform both the national and international community that the president has not yet signed any document recognizing the Republic of Kosovo and reserves the right to take appropriate measures to identify and punish the authors of the false document," the statement concluded.
