It urged to take recourse in the traditional method of dispute resolution in a peaceful manner, reminding that family issues should be resolved like a family. 

ANSAM stressed to consider the impending socio-political upheavals of the Nagas and to keep in concern the common goal to bring cohesion, socio-cultural harmony and peaceful coexistence within the Nagas as a family under the roof of one umbrella.

“As followers of Jesus Christ, the Prince of peace, let us all be reminded of our duty as Christians during this Christmas season to be the agents of peace and goodwill to all men,” it stated.
