Informations

Mali ( (listen); French pronunciation: ​[mali]), officially the Republic of Mali (French: République du Mali; Bambara: Mali ka Fasojamana; N'Ko script: ߡߊߟߌ ߞߊ ߝߊߛߏߖߊߡߊߣߊ), is a landlocked country in West Africa. Mali is the eighth-largest country in Africa, with an area of just over 1,240,000 square kilometres (480,000 sq mi). The population of Mali is 19.1 million. 67% of its population was estimated to be under the age of 25 in 2017. Its capital is Bamako. The sovereign state of Mali consists of eight regions and its borders on the north reach deep into the middle of the Sahara Desert, while the country's southern part, where the vast majority of inhabitants live, features the Niger and Senegal rivers. The nation's economy centers on agriculture and mining. Some of Mali's prominent natural resources include gold, being the third largest producer of gold from the African continent, and salt.Present-day Mali was once part of three West African empires that controlled trans-Saharan commerce: the Ghana Empire (for which Ghana is named), the Mali Empire (for which Mali is named), and the Songhai Empire. During its golden age, there was a flourishing of mathematics, astronomy, literature, and art. At its peak in 1300, the Mali Empire covered an area about twice the size of modern-day France and stretched to the west coast of Africa. In the late 19th century, during the Scramble for Africa, France seized control of Mali, which makes it part of French Sudan. French Sudan (then known as the Sudanese Republic) joined with Senegal in 1959, attaining independence in 1960 as the Mali Federation. Shortly thereafter, following Senegal's withdrawal from the federation, the Sudanese Republic declared itself the independent Republic of Mali. After a long period of one-party rule, a coup in 1991 resulted in the writing of a new constitution and the establishment of Mali as a democratic, multi-party state. In January 2012, an armed conflict broke out in northern Mali, where Tuareg rebels took control of a territory from the north, and in April declared the secession of a new nation, Azawad. The conflict was complicated by a military coup that occurred in March and later fighting between Tuareg and other rebel factions. In response to territorial gains, the French army launched Opération Serval in January 2013. A month later, Malian and French forces recaptured all the north. Presidential elections were held on 28 July 2013, with a second-round run-off held on 11 August, and legislative elections were held on 24 November and 15 December 2013. A coup d'etat is currently taking place in Mali. On 18 August 2020, the nation's president and prime minister were detained by the army following a mutiny passed by protests over continuing economic woes and a worsening national security situation, and the next day both resigned.
