NSCN (Khaplang) ready to talk with Center

Posted on Nov 14, 04:32PM | UNI

NSCN (Khaplang) has said the outfit was ready for talks on the settlement of the Naga political problem with the Centre provided it was given a written invitation.

According to a statement issued by NSCN (K), a verbal invitation had been made to the outfit by Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde but the faction insisted upon a written invitation before responding.

The statement further claimed that a written invitation from the Centre was expected in December.

Once the NSCN (K) received the invitation, the outfit would then convene a participatory meeting with mass-based organisations including civil societies so that opinions of all Nagas were taken before negotiations began, the faction said.

It maintained that any settlement would have to be two-pronged-one for Nagas in Myanmar and the other for Nagas in India.

Demanding full sovereignty, the NSCN(K) observed, 'We were independent people and will continue to remain so.'
