National Socialist Council of Nagalim or the NSCN (I-M) on Wednesday said that it stood by the “Naga National Decision” of the May 31, 2022, to uphold and protect Naga’s unique history and “national principle” at any cost.
The outfit in a press statement issued through its MIP stated that while upholding the “sanctity” of the “Framework Agreement” that was signed on the “foundation of respect” for and recognition of the sovereignty of the two entities–NSCN (I-M) and the government of India.
Re-affirming that the letter and spirit of the framework agreement of the collective leadership issued on December 16 last year (2022) whereby sovereignty of the “Naga Nation” was upheld and the Naga “National Flag and Constitution” were declared as “integral” to Naga sovereignty, the NSCN (i-M) has also stood by the resolution of the collective leadership and the NSCN members of July 23, 2019, to uphold the August 3, 2015, framework agreement and strive to conclude the ongoing “Indo-Naga” negotiation honourably.
“Nagas shall unwaveringly stand on the declared Naga national decision come what may”, the NSCN (I-M) said while also adding that an honourable and acceptable political solution between the government of India and the Nagas has been “mutually agreed” to be based on the “Framework Agreement” of August 3, 2015, wherein the sovereignty of the Nagas was acknowledged in “conjunction” with the Naga national flag and the Constitution.
Further, the NSCN (I-M) said that the Nagas do not acknowledge “any agreement” signed under the Indian Constitution.
