Union home minister Amit Shah has directed all the stakeholders in the negotiations on the vexed Naga Political issue to resume talks immediately. 

This was informed by Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio on Saturday after the meeting with Amit Shah in Shillong. 

He also said that the talks on the Naga Political issue are on an advanced stage. 

“Talks are at an advanced stage. There has been a break of nearly five months in the negotiation process so the Union home minister has asked all stakeholders to immediately resume talks for an early solution to the issue,” Rio said.

The Parliamentary Core Committee on Naga Political issue, led by Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio had held discussions with the NSCN-IM and the NNPGs in Dimapur earlier in the week. 

Both the meetings discussed the way ahead to resolve the decades old Naga Political issue. 

The Core Committee had urged the NSCN-IM to resume talks with the Government of India for an early solution to the issue. 

The Naga talks hit a deadlock in early 2020 after the NSCN-IM refused to sit for discussions with interlocutor and Nagaland Governor RN Ravi.
