Kohima: Centre’s emissary for the Naga peace talks, AK Mishra on Wednesday reached Nagaland and is expected to meet senior leaders of NSCN (IM) and the Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) soon.
Official sources told Northeast News that A K Mishra will meet the senior Naga leaders at Chümoukedima on Thursday.
While the agenda of the meetings has not been made public, it is expected that Mishra will try to iron out the differences between New Delhi and the NSCN (IM) leadership.
Mishra will meet different Naga groups and civil society organizations over the next two days, the sources said.
The NSCN (IM) delegation will be led by its general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah, the sources said.
The meetings are being held for confidence building before the next official round of talks to be held in New Delhi, the sources said.
The NSCN (IM) has been demanding for an honourable and acceptable political solution for resolution of the Naga imbroglio.
The Centre and NSCN (IM), which had been in a ceasefire agreement since 1997, signed the Framework Agreement in 2015. The peace talks, however, have remained inconclusive.
The NSCN (IM) has been demanding for the Naga National flag and a separate constitution.
