New Delhi, Feb 17 (IANS) Nagaland Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang and members of the Parliamentary Working Committee (PWC) on Wednesday met NSCN-IM general secretary T. Muivah to discuss the status of the ongoing peace negotiations between the group and the Indian government.

The 19-member PWC also discussed the possible contribution it could make in the ongoing negotiations.

Muivah, who is leading the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) in the peace talks with the Indian government, was accompanied by some leaders of the group.
