With the NSCN (IM) headed by Issak Chisi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah failing to make it to Chiang Mai in Thailand to attend a Naga reconciliation meeting organised by the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) last week,the organisers are now looking for a fresh date to bring all the factions closer.
The meeting,which was held in the Thailand city from May 14 to 26 was,however,attended by leaders of two other factions,the Naga National Council (NNC/FGN) and the new Khole-Kitovi faction of NCSN. Leaders of the NSCN Khaplang faction werent present either.
Though the NSCN(IM) leaders had expressed their inability to attend the meeting for some undisclosed reasons,a fresh date would be set up so that the reconciliation process could be carried forward,a statement issued by the FNR in Dimapur said. The FNRs efforts stem from the fact that any agreement drafted by the government with only one faction or group would not assure a long-lasting solution to the vexed Naga issue.
The next meeting of the highest level leaders would be convened at a mutually convenient location,it said.
