Reliable sources informed Nagaland Post that the government of India’s representative and Interlocutor for Naga Peace Talks, R.N Ravi, would meet NSCN (I-M) negotiators led by its chief negotiator, Th. Muivah, Saturday for a “discourse on the competencies”.
Sources maintained that the two parties still have to work on the competencies and that this task may not be a “cakewalk”.
NSCN (I-M) sources also confirmed that a meeting has been scheduled between the two parties, but added that the meeting was not for “anything specific”.
Earlier, Ravi has said that “some loose ends” have to be tied before reaching a “final agreement” to the decades-old negotiations between the two sides, which began in 1997.
Ravi has also made it clear that it would be premature to set a time-frame for concluding the Naga Peace Process.
However, Ravi has asserted that all negotiating parties (government of India, NSCN (I-M) and WC of NNPGs) would strive to conclude the Naga Peace Process as soon as possible.
