Union Home Minister Amit Shah has assured Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh that the Naga settlement would not affect the integrity of the state. The Naga peace talks refer to talks between the Indian government and the various stakeholders in Nagaland to resolve decades-old disputes. In 2015 with the BJP government in power firmly, a framework agreement was signed, setting the stage for the ongoing peace talks. Biren Singh had earlier met Union Home Minister Amit Singh on November 10 in New Delhi.

Last month, the Home Ministry said that all stakeholders including Assam, Manipur, and Arunachal Pradesh will be consulted before any settlement is arrived at with Naga groups and that credence should not be given to rumours that final Naga settlement has been reached.
