Kohima [Nagaland], July 16 (HornbillTV): Nagaland Government Spokesperson & Cabinet Minister, Neiba Kronu has requested the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to invite NSCN-IM to conclude peace talks.

Kohima [Nagaland], July 16 (HornbillTV): The Nagaland Government Spokesperson & Cabinet Minister, Neiba Kronu today said the parliamentary core committee on Naga political issue has requested the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah to invite the NSCN (IM) and conclude the peace talks.

Speaking to the reporters after the committee meeting, Kronu said the Govt of India does not have any problem, however, the NSCN (IM) has an issue, therefore, the solution to the protracted Naga peace talks could not come to the conclusion. The core committee has undertaken a number of resolutions during its meeting today at the State Banquet Hall in Kohima.

During the meeting the members adopted 4-point resolution. The committee welcomed the positive initiatives being taken by the government of India and the Working Committees of the NNPGS in regard to the ongoing peace dialogue. The committee also appreciated the efforts made by the Naga political groups in taking the talks forward, it stated. However, the committee has appealed to all sections to refrain from making statements that may create misunderstanding and disunity, and that may stand in the way of common and collective endeavor towards achieving peace.

The committee also appealed to the negotiating parties to refer to the competencies as reflected in the Framework Agreement of August 3 2015 signed between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM to arrive at a mutually acceptable definition of competencies to resolve this contentious issue at the earliest, and bring about a final solution that is honorable, acceptable and inclusive. 

Because the talks have been concluded officially on October 31, 2019, the prime minister and the Union Home Minister are urged to invite the NSCN (IM) leaders for an early conclusion.

The Parliamentary Committee also acknowledged that it is not a party to the Naga political negotiations. It is playing the role of facilitator, representing and reflecting the voice of the people; and this role will continue to be pursued in a serious manner, it stated. The committee assured that it stands by the commitments of the constituent political parties as reflected in their respective manifestoes to pave the way in the event of a political solution being arrived at, it stated.
