Against the backdrop of media reports that the centre has readied with its own set of proposals for discussion with the Naga groups to resolve the Naga political issue, the Joint Working Group (JWG) of the signatories of the Covenant of Reconciliation has reaffirmed its earlier “joint declaration” signed on September 28, 2009 in which they declared, “We jointly reject any form of conditional package offered to the Nagas by the Government of India.” Convenors of the JWG drawn from NSCN (I-M), Vikiye Awomi; NNC/FGN, Zhopra Vero and GPRN/NSCN, C. Singson in a joint statement issued after holding a meeting in Dimapur on Tuesday said the declaration was issued in order to remove all public assumptions and to clarify any doubts arising from the recent statements by the government of India. The signatories recommitted to uphold, respect and honor the principles of the “joint declaration.” Recognizing the urgency to facilitate the meeting of a summit at the highest level, in affirmation of the “Covenant of reconciliation,” the JWG also reassured to render every co-operation in order to bring about the Summit at the earliest. The Group reaffirmed and strengthened its total commitment to “work together in the spirit of love, non-violence, peace and respect to resolve outstanding issues amongst us.” The signatories also reinforced their pledge to abide and implement cessation of all forms of offensive activities in toto.
