SHANGHAI, May 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping said Wednesday security problems in Asia should eventually be solved by Asians themselves who are able to achieve regional peace and stability through cooperation.

Xi made the remarks during his keynote speech at the fourth summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) opened on Wednesday morning in Shanghai.

Asian countries should promote security in their own country and across the region through dialogue and cooperation, Xi said.

"We should engage in sincere and in-depth dialogue and communication to increase strategic mutual trust, reduce mutual misgivings, seek common ground while resolving differences and live in harmony with each other." Xi said.

Asian countries should focus on common security interests of all countries and build the awareness of meeting security challenges through cooperation, he said.

He urged countries in the region to insist on resolving disputes through peaceful means and oppose the arbitrary use of force or threats.

Provocations and escalation of tensions for selfish interests should also be opposed, he added.

While Asia is enhancing cooperation within the region, it must also be committed to cooperation with countries in other regions and international organizations, Xi said.

All efforts to promote Asia's security and cooperation are welcome to achieve results that benefit all, he said.
