The Italian Prime Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, has charged African Leaders to create a peaceful atmosphere for the Youth of their countries if they care about their future.

He said Africans must show particular interest in deepening their participation in peace-keeping missions on the Continent to ensure peaceful atmosphere for the youth.

He also congratulated the country on its significant role in peace missions around the world.

He pledged Italy`s support to Ghana`s Development Agenda.
