GoI-IM dialogue progressing well


IMPHAL, Aug 12 : The ongoing political dialogue between the Government of India and NSCN-IM has been progressing in the right direction with determination, according to a press release signed jointly by NSCN-IM general secretary Th Muivah and Government of India Interlocutor RN Ravi.
“We are closer than ever before to the final settlement and hope to conclude it sooner than later”, it said.
The political initiative of the Government of India and NSCN-IM to amicably resolve the Naga political issue has received a new urgency and impetus during the last two years.
The talks have become more purposeful, less ritualistic, more forthright and far more frequent.
“In the last two years, we met more times than all the years before. It helped in building unprecedented mutual understanding and trust”, claimed the joint press release.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statesmanship, his respect and love for the Naga people, their legitimate rights, and aspirations and wisdom of the Naga leaders led to the historic framework agreement of August 3, 2015 which settled the political parameters of the final solution, said the statement.
“Within these parameters, details are being worked out in earnest”, it asserted.
The demise of NSCN-IM Chairman Isak Chishi Swu adversely impacted the peace process. His departure was a big loss, it added.
