The Ministry of Home Affairs has once again tried to allay fears of neighbouring states of Nagaland which are apprehensive over the outcome of the peace talks.

The MHA has said that all stakeholders including the states of Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh will be duly consulted before any settlement is arrived at with the Naga groups and their concerns will be taken into consideration.

Moreover, the MHA has said that there has been considerable progress in the Naga peace talks.

Almost all Naga underground groups are engaged with the Government of India in the peace process.
