NSCN (Khango) and NNC Parent Body led by Z Royim signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on September 1 to “work together” towards “Joint Military Defence” and “Joint political talks with the Government of India”.
The MoU was jointly signed by Khango-led group’s chairman Khango Konyak and general secretary Hokato Vusshe and NNC (PB) group led by president Z Royim and general secretary Nupavi Achumi.
Informing this in a press, Z Royim said the groups, on the “Joint Military Defence”, agreed that “In the event of assault to any member or parties of this agreement by any domestic or foreign enemies, both the signed parties shall henceforth corroborate to neutralize such threats.”
On “Joint political talks with the Government of India”, both the parties agreed in “letter and spirit” to pursue the political dialogue under one platform with the Government of India towards achieving permanent solution to the vexed Naga political issue, “in the interest of both the parties and the Nagas in general”.
The move comes barely five months after Khango-led NSCN and NSCN group led by Akato Chophi on April 21 this year mutually entered into an agreement “to work together to achieve the various aims and objectives” and also jointly hold talks with the Government of India.
