NSCN-Khaplang willing for peace talks

Posted by Ramesh Khati on August 23, 2009

Kohima, Aug 22 (PTI) The Khaplang faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-K) has expressed willingness to begin talks if invited by the Centre.

The outfit was ready to begin political dialogue if invited by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, but the term “Naga sovereignty” defined by the faction’s supremo S S Khaplang would be discussed during the negotiation process, a senior member of NSCN(K) told reporters here yesterday.

Kughalu Mulatonu, envoy to collective leadership of NSCN(K), however, said the outfit was not in a hurry to begin talks. “Let the Centre take sufficient time.”

The NSCN(K) had signed a ceasefire agreement with the Centre in 2001. The truce had been periodically extended and a joint monitoring mechanism set up to enforce the ceasefire ground rules in the state.
