Chinese President Xi Jinping has attended the 16th meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. That's held in the Uzbekistani capital of Tashkent. He delivered a speech on the SCO's development and urged its members to expand cooperation.

Remarkable -- that's how Chinese President Xi Jinping described the achievements of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization over the past 15 years.

At a speech in the SCO meeting, Xi Jinping noted how the regional bloc advocated and put into practice the "Shanghai Spirit" -- or the cooperation that fosters mutual trust and benefit, equality, consultation, respect for diversity, and pursuit of common development.

For the continued growth of the SCO, President Xi puts forward a five-point proposal:

He is urging all members to carry forward the "Shanghai Spirit" and remain open and transparent.

continue prioritizing security and anti-terrorism and anti-drug trafficking efforts

expand practical cooperation and find greater space for SCO development

enhance cultural exchanges and people-to-people foundation

continue upholding openness and inclusiveness and get more parties on board for cooperation.

Leaders pledge to deepen effective cooperation

During the meeting, the SCO leaders reaffirmed their support for the "Belt and Road" initiative and pledged to deepen effective cooperation.

They also reached consensus on maintaining maritime legal order in accordance with international laws.
