In pursuance of this agreement, they have decided to work towards formation of one Naga national government. The signing of this document is historic and deserves to be welcomed by all sections of Naga society and adherence to it will lead to unity, understanding and oneness of all Nagas, said Neiphiu Rio, adding,  “The state government in its role as active facilitator welcomes and extends its supports to all efforts aimed at unity of Nagas as oneness of Nagas will pave the way for an honorable political solution that will bring permanent peace.”
