Jan 14, Colombo: Governing party parliamentarian of Sri Lanka Namal Rajapaksa says that the youth have an enormous responsibility to ensure the success of post war reconciliation.

Addressing a conference on youth and reconciliation, Rajapaksa has explained that the government has endeavored through its 3Rs programme - Rebuilding, Rehabilitation and Reconciliation to win the hearts and minds of people, of all ethnic groups in the country.

"The 3 R's approach has enabled us to build bridges among different ethnic groups," he has said.

"I am certain that our youth will ensure that incidents such as the ones that destroyed our nation will never happen in the future because our youth today are empowered to lead this nation, as one united team," he has added.

Rajapaksa has pointed out that the youth are the life blood of a country and the perceptions they carry into their adulthood will determine whether, that nation will prosper or not.
