Dimapur, April 8: The Naga Hoho has appealed to both the Governments of India and Myanmar to cease all ongoing military operations in the North western parts of Naga Self-Administered Zone (SAZ) bordering India in Sagaing Region of Myanmar.
In a statement, the NH lamented that when the whole world is combating a pandemic -COVID-19, a joint military operation in the North western parts of Naga Self-Administered Zone (SAZ) bordering India in Sagaing Region of Myanmar is being launched by the governments of Myanmar and India.
“The people from these villages are appealing to both the governments for ‘peace, tranquility and development in the field of education, healthcare and socio economy in Naga hills’ and not war,” it stated.
Extending solidarity to the Naga brethren, the NH called upon the two governments to cease all military operations “as it only impacts the lives of the ordinary men and women who are made to live in constant fear and trauma borne out of years of war and conflict in their homeland.”
The NH also reminded that recognizing the impact of the pandemic, the UN Secretary General have also called armed groups across the world for a global ceasefire which has been supported by many ambassadors worldwide.
“This same spirit must also apply to India and Myanmar government as well,” it stated.
Echoing the voice and sentiments of the Nagas in Myanmar, the NH appealed for peace, tranquility and development in the Naga hills. (Page News Service)
