KOHIMA:

The Political Affairs Mission (PAM) of the Naga People's Front (NPF) on Monday met the president of the NSCN-K breakaway faction, General (Rtd) Niki Sumi near Dimapur in Nagaland.

The meeting was led by NPF senior legislator Imkong L.Imchen in the absence of Leader of Opposition TR Zeliang, who could not attend the meeting due to health issues.

The meeting which started at 11am lasted for about 2 hours and ended on a "positive note".

Speaking to TNT-The Northeast Today, Imkong L.Imchen said that the meeting between PAM and NSCN-K President was "constructive" and "forthcoming" and that both parties were satisfied with the outcome.

Imkong reiterated that PAM's main agenda is to have an inclusive dialogue and a "one accord one solution" that is honourable and acceptable to all groups.

He added that President Niki Sumi also agreed that the final solution should be inclusive. "A general like Niki also expressed that inclusivity is the best way," Imchen added.

Imchen further said that since the Government of Nagaland and PAM are not party to the negotiations, their only effort is to bring all negotiating groups together, to come up with a consultative agenda and make a consultative settlement for a "one accord one solution."

Meanwhile, according to a statement issued by NSCN-K breakaway faction on Monday, NSCN/Government of People's Republic of Nagaland (GPRN) welcomes the initiative of PAM towards one political solution, inclusive of all Nagas.

"NSCN/GPRN stands for an inclusive Naga political solution with an intrinsic character of inclusiveness," NSCN/GPRN Kilonser (Minister) Nikato Pilot Sumi said in a statement.
