GUWAHATI: The National Socialist Council of Nagaland Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM), after 37 years of armed struggle and 20 years of negotiations, has finally settled for 'co-existing together with shared sovereignty' — a new experiment that a federal India with strong unitary features will embark on with the signing of apeace agreement soon. 

In a statement, a spokesperson of NSCN  (I-M) said, "As of now, the Nagas have agreed to co-exist together under shared sovereignty. 

The ongoing Indo-Naga political talks are progressing smoothly. The framework agreement, which will ensure peaceful coexistence between the Nagas and India with shared sovereignty, will surely usher in peace and a brighter political era for the Nagas."



In August, 2015, the NSCN (I-M) and the Centre signed a 'framework agreement' in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a final settlement.
