In the crucial discussion and deliberation which lasted for almost 2 hours, CNTC officials made its position clear that it will stand by the resolution of 14 Apex Naga Tribal Hohos adopted on August 11, that Solution should be based on the Framework Agreement and the Agreed Positions and thereafter, the last formal talks held on October 31, 2019, which has been agreed by GoI, NSCN IM and WC, NNPGs, it further stated unresolved issues be taken up in the future through a political means.

They also stressed the need for unity for a common Naga accord which should be acceptable, hounourable and inclusive. It committed that the Naga issue needs genuine efforts by all, to come to a common platform to avoid any misunderstanding post accord.

TR Zeliang appreciated the stand of CNTC and apprised them that in the previous discussion held at Chumukedima with Apex Organisations in which CNTC could not attend, all Apex organisations had similar perspective and road map on the way ahead to Naga solution. He was of the view that all tribal apex bodies should be in unison and work towards amalgamation of the various Naga Political Groups so that there is only One Agreement and One Solution.

Accordingly, he urged upon CNTC to work in tandem with the other Apex Organisations so that with a collective effort we can come to a common platform and achieve the much desired aspirations of the Naga people. He further stated that Naga issue is sacred to all Nagas and at this critical juncture, tribal and political colours should be shunted out for the welfare and well being of each one of us and that the Naga people should be the best judge as a matured progressive society .
