The second round of tripartite talks between Government of India, Manipur government and United Naga Council (UNC) was held at Senapati on Friday.
Besides deliberating on several issues, Friday’s tripartite meeting also came out with a four-point agreement primarily focussed on UNC’s core demand-- to roll back the decision of creation of seven new districts 
According to the first point, it stated that “the grievances of the UNC which led to the imposition of economic blockade were recognized, as there was non-adherence to the four memoranda of understanding and government of India’s assurance on the matter and Government of Manipur agree to start consultation with all stakeholders to redress the same.”
“The focal point no.1 of agreement arrived at in the tripartite talks on March 19, 2017 is reaffirmed by both the parties,” it stated.
The second point also stated that Manipur government would be represented at the political level in the next round of talks. 
In the third point, it agreed to respect the points agreed upon during tripartite talks held on March 19, 2017 by both Manipur government and UNC mutually at the time of arriving at an amicable settlement to the issue of creation of new districts.As agreed in the fourth point, it was decided to hold the next round of talks at Senapati within one month time.
Friday’s meeting was chaired by Government of India’s representative, MHA joint secretary (NE) Satyentra Garg and attended by an 11-member delegation of the UNC led by its president Gaidon Kamei, while chief secretary O Nabakishore represented the Manipur government.
After the talks, Gaidon Kamei told reporters that the talks was mostly concentrated on the Naga bodies objection to the creation of new seven districts.
“We stick to our demand to roll back the decision of creation of seven new districts. So, we are trying to bring a logical conclusion,” Kamei said.
