Samra said Assam and Meghalaya will try to resolve the remaining 40 % dispute in next two to three months and talks to resolve the dispute with Mizoram Are on . ” The dispute with Nagaland cannot be resolved politically . It is pending in Supreme Court and it will have to be resolved in the court , ” he said .

The agreement has kept in view the historical perspective , demographic profile , administrative convenience , proximity to the border and the aspirations of local residents . It is based on the report of the Local Commission , which was further fine – tuned by 12 regional committees in consultation with the local residents . Both the state governments have reached an understanding that the agreement with regards to the 123 disputed villages will be final and that neither of the states will make any new claim related to any area or village in future .
