Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh on Saturday welcomed
peace parleys held between New Delhi and ULFA and said it will
encourage other rebel groups of the north east to come to the
negotiation table.
"It is only through talks across the table that peace
can be brought back and any real sense of economic, social and
political development can come about in the region", state
Home Minister Tako Dabi in a statement.

Dabi also appreciated the ULFA pro-peace talk group`s
decision to hold talks with Union Home Minister P Chidambaram
and Home Secretary G K Pillai.

The continuity of the peace talks was welcomed as the
people of the region are "fed up of extortion, kidnapping,
killings and bandh calls."
Dabi said he had on behalf of the state government time
and again endorsed peace talks with all underground outfits
in the North East, particularly ULFA, NDFB and NSCN factions.
