Chinese president calls for harmony among SCO


15:24, June 07, 2012

BEIJING, June 7 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday called on the member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) to make joint efforts to build the SCO into a harmonious community.

Hu made the remarks as he addressed the 12th Meeting of the Council of Heads of Member States of the SCO held in Beijing.

"All the member states should increase communication and consultations to enhance mutual understanding and trust," Hu said at the annual SCO summit, urging the states to comprehensively implement a Treaty on Long-term Good-neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation. The treaty was inked by the SCO members in 2007 in Kyrgyzstan's capital of Bishkek.

The SCO member states should resolve existing problems with the spirit of mutual respect, equal consultation and mutual tolerance to build a harmonious and good-neighborly community for all the people of the countries in the region, according to Hu.

During his speech, the president suggested a committee of good-neighborliness, friendship and cooperation be set up to promote people-to-people interactions among SCO member states and lay a more solid social foundation for the development of the organization.

The SCO was founded in Shanghai on June 15, 2001, and currently has six full members -- China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
