Kohima: The Forum for Naga Reconciliation
(FNR) has called upon the people to participate in the Naga
reconciliation meeting on February 29 at Dimapur.

Terming the proposed deliberation as very crucial at
this juncture, the FNR in an appeal received here on Sunday, said
"the Naga people`s mandate for reconciliation and unity among
the Naga political groups is absolute," adding that people can
no longer afford to remain silent.

Recognizing the magnitude and complexities of the
current situation facing the Nagas, the Forum insisted that it
is essential that Naga people take a decisive step towards a
shared Naga future.

The FNR was formed in 2008 with the objective to
facilitate reconciliation among the Naga political groups on
the basis of the historical and political rights of the Nagas.

The FNR comprises of members representing Naga Churches, hoho
and civil society organizations.

Earlier, the three Naga underground groups, who were
signatories to "Covenant of Naga Re-conciliation: A Journey of
Common Hope," invited all civil societies to the proposed
re-conciliation meet at Dimapur.

At the initiative of the FNR, NSCN(I-M), GPRN/NSCN
(Khole-Kitovi) and FGN/NNC had signed the re-conciliation
agreement in 2008 in Thailand, leading to substantial
reduction in factional clashes in Nagaland.
