The NSCN (IM), which signed a peace accord with the government of India on August 3 2015 says that it realizes that unless and until the Naga people do not unite there shall be no chance of peace.
Vested interest groups:
Muivah said that it was some vested interest groups which was trying to compromise on certain issues. The framework agreement makes it clear that there shall be shared sovereignty between the Naga people and the Government of India, he also added. Both shall be equal stakeholders.
However there are some vested interests who have come into the picture after we signed the agreement. They are trying to spread rumours that we compromised on the core issue of sovereignity.
The Nagas have to be united if there has to be long lasting peace. Without the integration of the Nagas there can never be a complete solution he also added.
Warning against derailing the peace process:
The NSCN(IM) leader also sounded an alert that there may be many who will try and derail the peace accord. Today the centre has accepted that the Naga people have a unique identity and our culture has to be respected.
Do not expect a 100 per cent (Naga peace accord: India is not our threat, says NSCN(IM) chief). There is always give and take in negotiations and the framework has set in motion this process, Muivah also said.
In the Indian leadership there is a vision and hence we can expect peaceful co-existence, he also added. This framework agreement is the best thing to have happened as the Shillong Accord of 1975 was a failure.
