ANTA affirms total support to FA
CHANDEL, 1st Oct: Anal Naga Tangpi (ANTA) has affirmed its total support to the Indo-Naga Framework Agreement (FA) signed on August 3, 2015 in New Delhi between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM.
According to a statement of ANTA, the Framework Agreement furthers the goal of new relationship between India and the Nagas by recognising and acknowledging the importance of peaceful co-existence through shared sovereignty between the two entities. It also said that an agreement without the Naga flag and Naga constitution which would safeguard the inherent rights and identity of the Nagas would be against the universal principles acknowledged and recognised in the Framework Agreement. While reposing faith and trust in the collective leadership of NSCN and endorsing the broad vision of Framework Agreement and the concomitant ‘competencies’ negotiated therein, the ANTA appealed to both the negotiating parties to resolve the protracted Indo-Naga issue to an honourable and acceptable settlement at the earliest.
