Accord must exclude Naga-inhabited areas in Assam: Gogoi


Guwahati, Aug 11 (IANS) The Assam government welcomes the Naga peace accord signed by the central government and the NSCN-IM only if its framework excludes areas inhabited by Nagas in Assam, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said on Tuesday.

“The government of Assam definitely welcomes the Naga peace accord if the framework for any settlement excludes the extended areas of Naga inhabitation in Assam,” Gogoi said in a statement.

He said it augured well if the Naga peace accord led to the settlement of all vexed issues thus eventually paving the way for peace, progress and prosperity in Nagaland and the region as a whole.

The Centre and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) signed the accord on August 3.

Though the details have not been made available, the central government has said it was only a framework agreement and further discussions would be held before the final accord was signed.
