Nagaland: Tentative Accord Editor, SAIR; Executive Director, Institute for Conflict Management & South Asia Terrorism Portal A 'historic accord' was signed between the Government of India and the largest rebel Naga group, the National Socialist Council of Nagalim - Isak Muivah (NSCN-IM) on August 3, 2015, at once raising hopes and apprehensions against the context of what has been India's most enduring insurgency. While few details of the actual contents of the agreement are yet available, the Centre's principal interlocutor R.N. Ravi has clarified that the 'accord' is, in fact, a "framework agreement" that spells out the terms of a "final settlement". Reports suggest that such a final settlement would be worked out in three months, and would exclude any claims to sovereignty or alterations in state boundaries. 11-Aug-2015
