08:26, June 08, 2012

BEIJING, June 7 (Xinhua) -- Regional affairs should be solved through consultation between relevant countries in the region and international organizations, according to a declaration issued by the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) here on Thursday.

The specific means and mechanism for maintaining regional security and stability should be decided by the countries of that region, said the heads of state of the member states of the SCO in the Declaration on Building a Region with Lasting Peace and Common Prosperity.

The declaration was adopted at the end of the SCO Beijing summit on Thursday.

In the event of a situation threatening the peace, stability and security of a member state of the SCO or the entire region, the member states shall, in accordance with the organization's relevant documents, take political and diplomatic measures to deal with the situation timely and appropriately, said the leaders.

The member states continue to step up bilateral and multilateral cooperation to jointly combat terrorism, separatism and extremism, battle illicit trafficking in drugs and weapons and other transnational criminal activities, address illegal migration and meet the new threats and challenges in other security fields, they said.
