Joint Press Statement

18th July, 2011. New Delhi.

Negotiating teams of the Government of India (GoI) and the NSCN met on 18-07-11 at New Delhi. The GoI team was led by
the GoI’s Representative and Interlocutor, Mr. R S Pandey and the NSCN team was led by its Chief Negotiator, General Secretary, Mr. Thuingaleng Muivah.

Sustained negotiations over the past few months have led to a set of proposals for an honourable political settlement
based on the uniqueness of Naga history and situation which was recognized by the GoI in 2002, as well as the contemporary realities and a future vision consistent with the imperatives of the 21st century.

While the differences between the two parties have narrowed, some of the proposals would require further negotiations to reach
a mutually acceptable solution.

By appreciating and respecting each other’s positions and difficulties both the parties are confident in working out a settlement
in the shortest possible time.
