The NSCN-IM then said that the ongoing violence between the two communities – Meiteis and the Kukis– is something very detestable.

The statement then said, “The National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) puts on record that the following Naga minor tribes—Aimol, Chiru, Chothe, Kharam, Koireng and Kom are parts of Naga community and have been actively involved in the Nagas’ political struggle for their freedom from India and Myanmar till our goal is achieved”.
