YOUTH organisations must work together to solve social problems faced by the younger generation and come up with activities for them, Tamil Nesan said. 

In its editorial, the paper said these organisations should play an important role in getting the youths together and helping them to gain skills in various fields. 

“It should be made compulsory for all youths to become members in youth organisations. It also suggested that these organisations should be formed in schools.  

It noted that the Government was currently planning to introduce the Youth Development programme where all youth organisations would be coordinated and activities would be organised for youth participation.  

> Malaysia Nanban reported that Malaysia had no intention to mediate in the protracted Sri Lankan conflict as there was no such request from the government of that country.  

Malaysia did not want to meddle in the peace process being pursued by the international community, Foreign Ministry parliamentary secretary Ahmad Shabery Cheek was quoted as saying.  

He said Malaysia supported the initiatives by the United States, Norway, European Union and Japan to end the conflict.
