The meeting, called by the Eastern Nagaland People�s Organisation (ENPO), decided that all the tribes who attended the meeting would meet the NSCN (IM) and the Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) as a gesture of solidarity and convey the decision taken at the meeting, the media cell of the ENPO said in a release on Sunday.

At the meeting, ENPO president Kekongchim said the expectation of the Naga people from a solution to the Naga issue was enduring peace in the entire Naga areas. �However, it would not be possible until all Naga political groups come together and hammer out the differences, if there is any, and place a common agenda before the Government of India for a peaceful and lasting solution,� he said.
Kekongchim appealed to the negotiators to come together for the final agreement acceptable to all the groups and in the best possible interest of the people.
