Dimapur: The NSCN (IM) general secretary T Muivah would arrive Saturday night in New Delhi to carry forward the stalled Naga peace process, Union Home Secretary GK Pillai said here on Saturday.

"Muivah accepted the invitation from the Government of India communicated through the new Interlocutor RS Pandey to resume the peace dialogue," Pillai told newsmen here after attending a passing out parade of Assam Rifles.

The NSCN leader will meet the Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister by next week, he said.

Efforts are also being made to include other Naga groups, as demanded by the Naga people, as a permanent solution to the vexed Naga conflict is not possible by holding talks with only one group, the Union Home Secretary said.

Muivah had last visited India in December 2006 with NSCN chairman Isak Chisi Swu and held talks with government leaders. Both the leaders are based in the Dutch capital Amsterdam.

He is also expected to visit Nagaland besides addressing to the issue of clashes between the cadres of NSCN-IM and its rival NSCN (Khaplang), which resulted in unrest in the recent past.
