At the July 14 meeting, sources informed that the negotiating parties chalked out the “action plan” for the impending final agreement. They also agreed to finalise the “draft agreement” for early settlement to the decades old Naga political issue.
Sources also disclosed that Ravi had insisted on “including minority tribes of Nagaland” in the peace process.
The sources also said that the Interlocutor had sought for “some time” so as to “work things out” with the other negotiating party—[NSCN (I-M)].
