The central government and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) have been holding peace conferences to settle the decades-long Naga political dispute since the year 1997. The framework agreement (FA) was signed in the year 2015 and discussions were expected to have ended in the month of October 2019.

The NSCN argues that as per the framework agreement (FA) its sovereignty has to be retained and a final agreement should be made for the peaceful coexistence of the two sovereign powers.NSCN led by Isak Chishi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah asserts that the concept of 'co-existence of the two entities' and 'sharing sovereign power' means Naga people will be entitled to their own constitution and national flag.

In a recent statement earlier this month, the National Socialist Council of Nagaland IM stated the hype generated following Mishra's appointment had failed to live up to the expectations. "…much hype was generated that the final Naga solution is just round the corner…. However, the talks failed to live up to all the hype as the Government of India continues to indulge in political escapism on the very issues that are holding up the road to the Naga solution."
