Is Kernel SCTP (based on RFC 4960) backward compatible with RFC 2960 implementation

Just have a small query if somebody can help me out.

We have a Linux box which is running Kernel SCTP stack which is based on RFC 4960.

Using this stack can I create SCTP association with a peer which has an SCTP stack based on RFC 2960? basically the question is that is the new 4960 sctp stack interoperable with 2960.

(Please Note: The peer SCTP Stack implementation is based on RFC 2960, it takes Checksum handling from RFC 3309 and chunk bundling from RFC 4960)

If it is NOT possible to interop with this peer then what are the reasons?

Would really appreciate if someone can provide inputs.
