Solomons Governor General challenges youth to make a difference in advancing human affairs and to promote peace

Solomon Islands Governor General Sir Nathaniel Waena has said the Prime Minister's presence at yesterday's Commonwealth day celebration signifies the respect that government attaches to the day and its respect to Commonwealth youths.

Sir Nathaniel said Prime Minister Sogavare's presence also represents the importance that government attaches to the Commonwealth Countries of the South Pacific whose interests are represented by the Commonwealth Youth Program - Pacific Centre.

Speaking on the theme of the Commonwealth Day, Sir Nathaniel question if countries in the pacific are prepared to accept respecting each others differences in human society.

He said promoting understanding alone would be the most appropriate tool to effectively advance harmony and foster human co-existence.

Sir Nathaniel urged the Commonwealth Youth Program - Pacific Centre in Honiara to ensure that Commonwealth Youths of the region are appropriately directed and developed.

He challenged young people how they can make a difference in advancing human affairs and to promote peace and national harmony.

"The youths of the Commonwealth countries in the South Pacific region must be appropriately directed and developed. We need to appreciate the need to readily accept, that there are given human differences, which we cannot easily change, and thus we have to respect them for what they are."
