Ceasefire with Nagaland`s NSCN-K extended
New Delhi: The ceasefire agreement between the government and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K) has been extended by another year, it was announced Tuesday.
The decision to extend the agreement with effect from April 28, 2010 was taken Monday evening at a meeting with home ministry officials and NSCN-K representatives, an official statement here said.
Active in the eastern parts of Nagaland, besides the Tirap and Changlang districts of neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh, the Khaplang outfit aims at establishing a `Greater Nagaland` comprising the Naga dominated areas of neighbouring states within India and contiguous areas in Myanmar.
The outfit has largely observed a truce with security personnel since 1998.
