South Ossetia and Abkhazia recognize each other
South Ossetia and Abkhazia plan to conclude an agreement in which they recognize each other’s independence, the “Ambassador to Abkhazia” Robert Kokoev has declared. They also intend to formulate an agreement on military cooperation. Kokoev says that South Ossetia and Abkhazia have recognized each other previously, but the signing of a new document is planned. As previously reported, Russia recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia as “independent Republics” on August 26.
