New Delhi: The Centre on Friday said an
agreement with ULFA on suspension of operations possibly
before August 15 ahead of formal peace talks with the
insurgent outfit.
"ULFA leaders met me in the presence of Chief Minister
of Assam. Then they called on the Home Secretary. Next step is
to sign a suspension agreement. It is being drafted. Once it
is signed, which I hope will be before August 15, I think
formal talks will start between the ULFA delegation,
Government of India and government of Assam," Home Minister P
Chidambaram told reporters here.
He said talks with ULFA were on track and should begin
soon.
