Dimapur, December 10: The Consultative meeting of the NNPGs Working Committee and all apex Naga Civil Societies held on December 9 resolved to urge the Government of India to suspend the ensuing Legislative Assembly Elections in Nagaland, to allow the negotiators and the Naga people to focus solely on delivering a solution that is acceptable, honourable and enduring to both the GOI and the Nagas.

The meeting resolved to strengthen unity of the Nagas while extending fullest support and co-operation towards the NNPGs Working Committee in their ongoing negotiations with the GOI. It urged all concerned to pray for the positive outcome of the political dialogue between the two entities.

The meeting acknowledged the agreed position reached between the GOI and the NNPGs Working Committee on November 17, which clearly states that the GOI "Recognises the historical and political rights of the Nagas to self determine their future in consonance with their distinct identity". Thus the content in the agreement reaffirms political legitimacy for the future.

The meeting expressed deep appreciation to the NNPGs for exhibiting the spirit of oneness and working under a single platform through Working Committee.

It also appreciated the GOI, for extending official invitation to Working Committee of Naga National Political groups, in order to solve the prolonged Indo-Naga conflict.
