New Delhi and pro-talk ULFA resumed their talks in New Delhi on Monday.

A three-member pro-talk ULFA delegation attended in a formal discussion with interlocutor AB Mathur at an undisclosed location in New Delhi.

“The talks were positive and we will sit for another round of discussion tomorrow,” said an official on condition of anonymity.

Pro-talk ULFA leaders including chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa, general secretary Anup Chetia and foreign secretary Sasadhar Choudhary met Mathur, a former special secretary of the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) to take ahead their ongoing peace talks.

Monday’s meeting assumes significance as New Delhi is all set to sign a peace accord with the NSCN (IM) in the coming days.

Mathur on Monday during a book release programme hinted that talk with ULFA is at final stage.

Ever since talks started between government and pro-talk faction of ULFA, the outcome was “almost positive,” except on the issue of granting constitutional safeguard to the indigenous people of the state, said an ULFA leader.
