Chennai, Dec 30 (UNI) Nagaland Chief Minister Nelphlu Rio today said the border row with Myanmar could be solved only through talks.
Talking to reporters after calling on his Tamil Nadu counterpart M Karunanidhi at the latter's Gopalapuram residence here, he said since one third of the Nagas were living in Myanmar, the issue had to be solved only through political dialogue.
''We have been insisting the Centre to arrive at a negotiated settlement to the border issue.'' he added.
Mr Rio said as ceasefire was in force, the situation in the troubled state was peaceful.
Describing his nearly 20-minute meeting with Mr Karunanidhi as a courtesy call, he appealed to the people of South India, especially Tamil Nadu, to visit Nagaland to promote tourism.
