KOHIMA, June 11 - Nagaland Chief Minister Shurhozelie Liezietsu on Saturday condoled the death of NSCN(K) chairman SS Khaplang saying it was tragic that he passed away before things could be taken forward to their logical conclusion.

�It is tragic that an important Naga leader like Khaplang expired considering the fact that the protracted Naga political problem is on the verge of being resolved and the need for all Naga political groups to come together to air views and aspirations to the Government of India in one voice is absolutely imperative,� Liezietsu said in a condolence message here.

After NSCN-K abrogated the ceasefire with Government of India in 2015, the Nagaland Government in consultation with Centre had been sending delegations to meet the NSCN(K) leadership in Myanmar to convince the rebel outfit to re-enter the peace process to find an early solution to the Naga political problem, he said.

�It was encouraging to learn that Khaplang had, a few months back conveyed his willingness to have a dialogue with the government provided issues of substance were discussed,� he said.

However, the Naga leader died before things could be taken forward to their logical conclusion.

Liezietsu appealed to the Nagas to �resolve and dedicate� themselves to work with renewed vigour and determination to find a solution to the Naga political problem which is �honourable and acceptable to all stakeholders�.

On behalf of the government and people of Nagaland, the Chief Minister conveyed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family members. � PTI
