It also affirmed that Nagas would not compromise their inherent rights under any circumstance.
The house cautioned any Naga elected representative, political leader, political party, unmandated or unauthorized Naga individual or group not to attend or participate in any assembly or meeting that would sabotage the peace process.
It was also decided in the meeting that anyone defying the Naga political principle and its position would be treated as anti national and their entry into Naga territory would be banned.
