Dimapur, May 14: The NSCN group led by Thuingaleng Muivah and Isak Chisi Swu has accused the Khole-Kitovi led NSCN of attempting to sabotage the former’s 14 year-long peace process.
The NSCN-IM decided to refrain from the Thailand reconciliation meet of the Nagas.
On Monday, the NSCN-IM’s highest decision making body known as Steering Committee had a serious meeting in this connection.
In a statement made available to Newmai News Network tonight by the NSCN-IM’s chief principal secretary Samson Jajo said, “The Steering Committee and Council of Kilonsers (ministers) had a joint council meeting today and taken the decision that in view of the recent political development that Khole-Kitovi group has intimated to the Government of India through the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) Joint Secretary Shri. Shambhu Singh to seek settlement within the boundary of the so-called Nagaland state, the joint council with much regret states that the said group’s move is a calculated- deliberate step to sabotage the hard earned 14 years negotiations being held at the highest level of the government of India and the NSCN. It is also an assault on the reconciliation process”.
“The joint council therefore, has decided to refrain from attending the reconciliation meeting to be held at the highest level from May 21 at Chiang Mai, Thailand till clarification is made to the Naga people by the said group. The joint council also is of the opinion that the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) is required to make its position very clear on the matter,” the NSCN-IM stated.
