DIMAPUR, Sept 5 � The NSCN-IM today warned that there is going to be a serious problem unless the ceasefire area coverage is clarified by the Central Government.

The NSCN-IM in a press communique today said that in view of the repeated and unprovoked statements on the ceasefire area coverage in the current peace process between the Government of India and the Naga outfit by the Cease-Fire Monitoring Group (CFMG) chairman Lieutenant General NK Singh(Rtd), Manipur Chief Minister Ibobi Singh and Home Minister Gaikhangam, the NSCN-IM said it is constrained to state that unless the cease-fire area coverage is clarified there is going to be a serious problem.

Referring to to the bilateral agreement of the Government of India and the NSCN on cease-fire made on June 14, 2001, in Bangkok, the NSCN-IM said it states that �the cease-fire agreement is between the Government of India and the NSCN as two entities without territorial limits�. �We reiterate that there is no official and bilateral agreement which shows that the three words �without territorial limits� have been �deleted� or �non-existent� as claimed by Lt Gen NK Singh (Rtd),� it added.

The NSCN-IM has taken a serious view and strong exception to the irresponsible statement of General NK Singh(Rtd), chairman of the CFMG that �cease-fire with the NSCN does not extend outside Nagaland�.

The Naga outfit said it is time for the Government of India to give a clear cut clarification on the issue of ceasefire coverage as agreed upon in the June 14, 2001 Bangkok agreement in order to prevent recurrence of conflict and also to avert the damaging ramifications it will have on the current Indo-Naga peace process.
