The Khaplang faction of the NSCN on Sunday regretted the tension and unrest in the neighbouring states of Nagaland and Manipur, saying it has harmed the Naga peace and reconciliation process.

The NSCN(K) said that the 'Covenant of Re-conciliation' signed by top leaders of three Naga underground groups at Chiang Mai in Thailand last year at the initiative of Forum for Naga Reconciliation was being undermined by the tension between the two states.

A statement by the group said that the covenant assured the Naga people that 'violence in any form among the factions should be avoided so that in due course all political groups shall reconcile with each other, giving themselves a chance to create a common platform to push for a final political settlement between the Nagas and the Government of India'.

''The covenant did not anoint Th. Muivah (NSCN-IM general secretary) or anyone to represent the Nagas and create social unrest in Manipur and Nagaland,” the statement said hinting at Muivah's intended visit to his native village Somdal in Manipur's Ukhrul district that gave rise to tension between the two states.
