The National Socialist Council of Nagaland Isaak-Muivah faction (NSCN-IM) on Wednesday stated the Nagas will co-exist with India.

However, the outfit reiterated that it will not merge with the ‘Indian Union’.

In a statement issued by the NSCN-IM stated the ‘Government of India is in talks with the outfit as NSCN represents the issues of Nagas that covers all the Nagas and their territories’

‘No one should doubt that the Framework Agreement is the meeting point for the Nagas and the Indians,’ it stated

‘The Nagas and Indians are inseparably inter-related in many fields. We must learn to co-exist for mutual benefits,’ the statement further read.

The outfit further claimed, ‘Nagas is a recognized entity. Nagas do not accept the Indian Constitution but Nagas will share powers based on competencies.’

The outfit also called upon fellow rebel groups to shed the differences and seize the opportunity in finding the solution.

The ‘Framework Agreement’ officially signed and sealed between the government and NSCN is the meeting point for the war-ridden Indians and the Nagas on the one hand and the uniting point for the divided Nagas on the other, it added.
