ArmInfo. The congratulatory message sent by President of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Bako Sahakyan to President of Abkhazia Sergey Bagapsh on the occasion of his re-election proves that the two states have de facto recognized each other, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National Assembly of NKR Vahram Atanessyan said during a press-conference today.
In due time this mutual recognition may be given a diplomatic form.
To remind, in his message sent to Bagapsh Dec 16 2009 Sahakyan congratulated the Abkhazian president on his re-election.
Feb 12, on the invitation of the Abkhazian authorities, Sahakyan attended Bagapsh's inauguration.
