BEIJING, June 6 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao on Wednesday called on leaders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states to promote mutual trust and regional stability and cooperation, and to expand the grouping's global influence.

President Hu made the remarks while addressing a closed-door session of the SCO Beijing summit held at the Great Hall of People.

For more than 10 years, the SCO has maintained a rather stable and healthy development, achieved remarkable accomplishments in combating terrorism, and the economic, people-to-people and cultural cooperation among member states has produced substantial results, said Hu.

He added that the establishment and advancement of the SCO is in line with the common interests of the SCO members, and plays an important role in maintaining regional security and stability, as well as promoting common development.

The Chinese president also said that the international and regional situation is complex and volatile, thus bringing both opportunities and challenges to the multinational organization.

He said the member states should set their goals for the next decade, and make new progress so to bring substantial benefits to every other member and make fresh contributions to protecting peace and stability in the region and around the world.

Hu said the SCO members should improve mutual trust and mutual support, consolidate internal unity and work hard to promote peace and harmony in the region.

All members need to counter the "three evil forces" of terrorism, separatism and extremism, curb drug-trafficking, and transnational organized crimes, and send clear and concerted signals on major issues within the region and of the surrounding areas, said Hu.
