In a major breakthrough in ensuring peace in conflict-hit North-East, the Nrendra Modi government signed a peace accord with Naga insurgent group Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) - NSCN (IM). Now, after the success of striking a peace deal with the insurgent group, the government has set its eyes on other rebel groups in the North-East and Maoists. Government sources said with the focus being on surrenders, the government hopes to stop these insurgent movements.

RN Ravi inked the document on behalf of the Union government, while NSCN (IM) chairman Isak Chishi Swu and general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah were the signatories on behalf of the Naga organisation.

However, NSCN-Khaplang (NSCN-K), the faction of the NSCN which broke away in 1988 was not part of the settlement. Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM): Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM) is a Naga outfit operating in Northeast India. The group was named after its two leaders, Isak Chishi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah.
