NSCN (IM): separate flag issue, Naga peace will be discussed

New Delhi: As the Government of India (GoI) and NSCN (IM) launched the Naga Peace Talks in New Delhi on August 23, the issue of the Naga flag was a major topic of discussion.

It was further informed that the talks will continue on August 25 during which the way forward will be decided.

“The next round of talks on how to finalize will continue on August 25,” a source added.

The NSCN (IM) team, led by its Ato Kilonser and chief negotiator, Thuingaleng Muivah, is currently camping in Delhi for talks. GoI representative for Naga peace talks AK Mishra is leading the other side.
Peace talks between the GoI and the NSCN (IM) have stalled over the issue of a separate constitution and flag.

The GoI and NSCN (IM) signed the framework agreement on August 3, 2015, and while talks have since begun, the final settlement is yet to be signed.
Earlier this month, Muivah said central leaders should clarify their position on the flag and constitution.

On August 14, during his Naga Independence Day message, Muivah said that the flag and the constitution “are not inherently inseparable from the sovereignty of the people.”

“There is no ambiguity about it. Indian leaders also understand it. They should take a stand to speak the truth,” he added.
