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.
