New Delhi, November 27: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has taken personal interest in reviewing the status of the ongoing peace talks between New Delhi and the collective leadership of the NSCN(IM), a report in The Sentinel said on Tuesday.

The All India Congress Committee's in-charge of Nagaland K Jayakkumar said the Congress leader is hopeful about a quick solution to the problem in northeast India which is going on for a long time, the report said.

The talks between Centre's interlocutor R S Pandey and NSCN leaders Isaac Chisi Swu and Thuingleng Muivah have resumed in the national capital after a long time.

Sources in the home ministry said the Centre is trying to give full recognition to the Nagas living in other states of the northeast although the NSCN (I-M) leadership accused the government of delaying the procedure. The Centre, on the other hand, feels that the issue should be resolved by taking people from all other communities in the region into consideration.

The Indian government and the NSCN(I-M) had begun the talks in 1997 and over 80 rounds of talks had already taken place in the last 16 years, some even in a neutral venue.
