Senior Government of India (GoI) officials and NSCN (I-M) leaders on Monday held an “informal meeting” in the national capital, Delhi.

Government of India was represented by senior officials from the Intelligence Bureau-- additional director, A.K. Mishra and joint director (North East), M.S. Tully and NSCN (I-M) delegation led by Th. Muivah, general secretary and chief negotiator of the group.

Highly placed sources informed that Nagaland Governor and Centre’s Interlocutor for Naga peace talks, R.N. Ravi is also scheduled to meet the NSCN (I-M) delegation. Ravi arrived Delhi on Monday and is scheduled to meet the NSCN (I-M) leaders.

As reported earlier, highly placed sources informed Nagaland Post that the negotiating parties were likely to hold the meeting after August 15 (Independence Day celebration).

Sources also said that some significant development can be expected by September.

Meanwhile, it may be mentioned that Assam Finance minister and convenor of North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) in a tweet on August 5 stated, “...I received a call from Hon HM Sri @AmitShah to discuss about issues pertaining to enduring peace in #NorthEast. Despite being in hospital his commitment to work is unwavering. This sets a benchmark for us all. India is proud to have you as Home Minister Sir. Admiration!”

It may also be pertinent to note that Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio and Himanta Sarma had also met in Delhi last week. It was not known what was discussed at the meeting, however, the meeting assumes significance against the backdrop of Sarma’s tweet.

It may be recalled that Th. Muivah, accompanied by his wife and others, left for Delhi by a chartered flight on July 20. 

A 5-member NSCN (I-M) delegation left for Delhi via Guwahati on August 6 and later another 9-member delegation of senior NSCN (I-M) leaders left for Delhi from Dimapur on August 7 by a chartered flight.
