Delhi, Naga rebels to hold truce talks outside India


Central government negotiators and leaders of the separatist National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) are expected to meet outside the country to discuss extension of a ceasefire aimed at ending nearly six decades of insurgency in Nagaland.

The NSCN-IM, led by Isak Chishi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah, has been engaged in peace talks after entering into a ceasefire with the Government in 1997. The ceasefire ends on July 31.
