Asmara, 23 July 2010 - The 3-day International Youth Symposium that was held at Hotel Asmara Palace under the theme: “Mutual Understanding for Peace, Security and Sustainable Development” concluded today adopting significant resolutions and recommendations.

Unanimously denouncing the unjust sanctions resolution against Eritrea, the participants of the symposium adopted various resolutions, including the need for annulling the unjust resolution without any precondition, structuring African regional organizations and the UN,  African media outlets at national and regional level to enhance programs focusing on strengthening the political and socio-economic wellbeing of youths, among others.

In a seminar he conducted at the symposium under the title “Strengthening Youths and Nation-Building,” Mr. Sultan Seid, Chairman of the NUEYS, pointed out that no cherished objective could be realized without building a strong nation and nationalism. To this end,  he underlined the paramount importance of nurturing mature and dynamic youths.

Mr. Sultan further explained that the investment made by nations on their youths is the determining factor for the success of the endeavors for changing Africa’s negative image and enabling it to become master of its own resources. He further stressed the need for taking joint action towards ensuring regional stability and nurturing mature youths so that the African people may become beneficiaries of their own resources.

Meanwhile, various study papers were presented today at the symposium focusing on diverse topics. 9 study papers were presented in the course of the 3-day international symposium on which the participants held in-depth deliberations.
