The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), serving as a force for peace, construction and development, has played an important role on the international stage, Chinese ambassador to Kazakhstan has said.

"Being a force for peace, a force for construction and a force for development, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization has played a very important role on the international stage since its establishment 10 years ago," Zhou Li told Xinhua and other Chinese media prior to a summit marking the grouping's 10th anniversary.

"Reviewing the development of the SCO, we easily find it is first of all a force for peace," Zhou said.

From the early years of "Shanghai Five Nations" to this decade since its establishment, the grouping has been always following the principles of good-neighborliness, friendship, equality, cooperation and not targeting at any third party, he said.

It advocates the democratization of international relations, supports a multipolar world and multilateralism, advocates peaceful resolution of disputes of all countries and regions through dialogue, and opposes the use of force or threat of using force and terrorism, he said.

SCO is also a force for construction, Zhou said. "Each of the SCO member states covers a vast territory with a large population. Facing a growing trend of multi-polarization and globalization, how to promote its member states' social development and national construction is a very important subject."
