Kohima : Nagaland’s armed insurgent group NSCN-IM (National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Issac-Muivah) claimed there won’t be any peace agreement pact with India’s central government till it doesn’t provide the separate flags and constitution status.

The NSCN-IM shared council meeting on Friday discussed the political and historical rights of the Naga people and the Indo-Naga political dialogue. The meeting took place at the Central Headquarters in Hurban near Dimapur in Nagaland.

NSCN-IM took this strong stance during the peace talks when there have been certain disagreements between Nagaland Governor and negotiator RN Ravi and counterpart. NSCN-IM said in a statement that the assembly unanimously passed the resolution, which reiterated the stand of NSCN-IM.

The rebellion group wants the Naga national flag and constitution to be part of Indo-Naga political solutions and qualify the pact as honorable and acceptable. The statement further added, the Central Government and the NSCN-IM must reach a final agreement based on historic Framework Agreement of August 3, 2015.

Last month, the NSCN-IM claimed that the Center had recognized the sovereignty of the Naga people. An agreement was signed in the year 2015, which agreed that the Naga people would co-exist but not merge with India.

However, government sources say another Naga armed group, the Naga National Political Group, has said that they are ready to sign the peace pact without demanding separate flags and constitution.
