Kohima: The NSCN-IM on Wednesday informed that the Indo-Naga political “talk teams are back on the table” and that the “talk is progressing”. The group said that the Framework Agreement (FA) signed on August 3, 2015, is “brought back to life” to remove any misinterpretation and hasten the signing of the Naga solution agreement.

The NSCN-IM, through its MIP, said that Nagaland governor RN Ravi’s “reckless statement” in the state Assembly session that the Naga political talks have concluded, has created “unnecessary confusion”.

“It is needless to say that in many points, his statements and conclusions reflected his role as Nagaland governor and not as interlocutor. It is a matter of regret that his role as interlocutor is nothing less than disparaging and dismal,” said NSCN-IM.

It said that the status confirmed by the Union Government, that the talks are in an advance stage, is the “ground reality” of the Indo-Naga political talk. The NSCN is leaving no stone unturned to safeguard the political identity of the Naga people.

NSCN-IM said that Ravi’s “misleading statement before the whole nation by blatantly contradicting” with the Government of India is “unfortunate” as the sensitive Indo-Naga political negotiations have been going on for more than two decades.

“In the matter of Naga political issue, he should be cautious of every single word he uttered lest his credibility is damned,” the group said. The Indo-Naga political talk is handled by both parties to take the Naga people and the GoI to the point that is honourable and acceptable, it informed.

“This is the official understanding and the only way to conclude the talk. NSCN, therefore, under no circumstances will fail the Naga people and will never sign any agreement that is short of the mutual standard as agreed upon,” it concluded.
