Ceasefire pacts with 3 Naga insurgent groups extended by a year

Apr 12, 2021 21:04 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Ministry of Home Affairs on Monday has extended the  ceasefire agreements with three Nagaland insurgent groups for one more year till April 2022.

The three outfits are breakaway factions of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland- Isak Muivah and National Socialist Council of Nagaland- Khaplang.

The NSCN-IM signed a Framework Agreement with the Government of India on August 3, 2015 in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to find a permanent solution to the Naga issue. However, the talks have not been resolved yet.

On the other hand the NSCN-K signed a ceasefire agreement in 2001 but abrogated it in 2015.

The primary objective of both dominant groups is establishment of Nagalim or Greater Nagaland, an independent state.
