Highest level leaders of three Naga nationalist groups – the NNC/FGN, GPRN/NSCN and NSCN/GPRN – who met September 18 at Dimapur, facilitate by the Forum for Naga Reconciliation, have agreed to reconcile based on the “Historical and Political Rights of the Nagas”.
The top leaders including NNC/FGN “kedaghe” “brig (retd)” S. Singnya, GPRN/NSCN “ato kilonser” N. Kitovi Zhimomi, and NSCN/GPRN “ato kilonser” Th. Muivah declared to iron out their differences and cease all forms of hostilities including territorial expansion.
Terming this feat as “A Historic Day”, the FNR said the day would go down as another ‘historic landmark’ in the struggle for Naga rights, “as the top leaders of NNC/FGN, GPRN/NSCN and NSCN/GPRN met together for the first time to further strengthen the Naga Reconciliation: A Journey of Common Hope.”
A statement from FNR said that the three leaders, responding to the deep yearning of the Naga people and in affirmation to the call made by it to convene the highest level reconciliation meeting, met in Dimapur to show their commitment and sincerity to the Naga Reconciliation.
“In a solemn and dignified meeting, the leaders patiently listened to each other and emphasized the need for Naga Reconciliation and to end all violence and bloodshed amongst the Nagas,” said the FNR.
In a gracious demonstration of solidarity, the leaders also agreed to further strengthen the “Covenant of Naga Reconciliation,” the Forum stated.
The FNR has observed this “historic meeting” as the beginning of a new phase of Naga Reconciliation.
Further, recognizing that Naga political groups would need to engage and transcend difficult issues between them, the Forum said it was encouraged by the positive attitude shown by the leaders. “We urge them to continue displaying wise and courageous leadership for Naga Reconciliation,” it stated.
The forum also conveyed “heartfelt gratitude” to Naga people for their patience, understanding and support to Naga Reconciliation.
“We encourage the Naga people to fearlessly speak and work for Reconciliation in the spirit of forgiveness,” the statement urged.
Meanwhile, the FNR, along with the Naga people, deeply expressed gratitude to Baptist World Alliance, Quakers and American Baptist Churches for their prayers and for walking with Nagas in their Journey towards Reconciliation.
It also conveyed gratefulness to Mr and Mrs Hukato Naga for hosting the “Highest Level Reconciliation meeting” at their residence in Ikishe village.
NNC/FGN “kedaghe” “brig (retd)” S. Singnya was accompanied by Zhopra Vero, Peshuo Lam and Puthai Lam. GPRN/NSCN “ato kilonser” N. Kitovi Zhimomi was accompanied by Azheto Chopy, Huthrong Yimchungerü and C. Singson. NSCN/GPRN “ato kilonser” Th. Muivah was accompanied by Gen (Retd) V S Atem, Qhevihe Chishi and Kedulhitsü Tsuzu.
