The Council of Ministers of the European Union has adopted a Resolution calling for increased cooperation with third countries in the youth field. The Resolution is aimed at encouraging the intensification of cooperation on exchanges and mobility of young people with the EFTA countries, the Central and Eastern European countries and in the context of the North-South Dialogue.

Particular areas in which the Council wishes to see cooperation strengthened are:

- Cooperation between governmental and non-governmental youth structures;
- Training of youth leaders;
- Facilitating access of young people to information;
- Promotion of exchanges between youth groups and associations in the Member States and third countries;
- Participation, by young people, in voluntary service activities in third countries, including developing countries, with which the Community has association or cooperation agreements.

In its Resolution, the Council recognizes the importance of cooperation in the area of youth in order to foster exchanges within the civilian population and further dialogue between the European Union and third countries. It also recognizes its importance in combating racism and xenophobia.
