Kohima, Sep 26 (UNI) The Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR), in a historic meeting with the leaders of 32 Naga civil societies, recommended a ten-point resolution aimed at reconciliation, peace and unity among the Naga brethren.

The FNR had organised the confluence with the theme ''Journey of Common Hope'' at the Sumi Baptist Church, Dimapur yesterday, following three such meetings on Naga reconciliation at Chiang Mai in Thailand.

The Forum resolved to strengthen the Naga reconciliation efforts through a set of mutually-agreed recommendations.

The most prominent and unanimous of the recommendations, chalked out by the various organisations during the meeting, was for all Naga national groups to stop violence against each other.

It was also agreed that the Naga groups repeal all ''Azhas'' in the form of quit notice, ex-communications and bans that stand in the way of genuine reconciliation and evolve mechanism against excessive and unqualified ''taxation'' by the Naga underground factions.

Naga Hoho president Keviletuo, Nagaland Baptist Church Council Secretary Rev Kari Longcher and Eastern Nagaland Public Organisation (ENPO) leaders also contended that roadblocks standing in the way of reconciliation should give way to the peace initiatives.

In a touching initiative of the meeting, over 20 children, from an orphanage of Dimapur, who lost their parents to factional killing, also participated.
