topic word: recognise

"Clearly, it would be option three. This would recognise the near-impossibility of seeing through the post-Brexit economic fog, would help soothe financial market fears rather than add to them, be consistent with the pragmatic approach to deficit reduction Osborne has taken over the past six years, and avoid a schism in his party." (From George Osborne's Brexit budget would guarantee a recession )

Dose "recognise" mean --
"to perceive as existing or true; realize:to be the first to recognize a fact. (WR dictionary)"???

    Thank you, Barque!

    I wonder if "This/It (would) recognise" is a commonly used expression (in BE)? Any similar/equivalent expressions of it (in AE)?

    "Option three is the suck-it-and-see approach. This recognises that it is too early to say how the economy is going to perform so there is no point in doing anything too hasty." (Also from the same article.)
