The 15th International Youth Forum was opened under the patronage of President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Magam Ruhunu Pura International Conference Hall in Hambantota this morning.

This global youth forum which began today on the theme of “Millennium Development 2015 ahead” will conclude on 10th of May, and the rest of the sessions will be held at the BMICH in Colombo.

The forum is the first to be held in Asia, and nearly 1,500 representatives and 27 government Ministers in charge of youth affairs from 169 countries are participating in the Colombo forum.

Addressing the opening ceremony, President Mahinda Rajapaksa urged the global youth community to constantly venerate one’s own country.

He said the Sri Lankan youth community had been lured to terrorism over the passage of time but all of them were rehabilitated and re-integrated to the society later.

President Rajapaksa said that the government treated such misled young militants as cannon fodder of terrorism and never treated them as perpetrators.
