Referencing a "new Asian security concept", Chinese President Xi Jinping says for most Asian countries, common development is the key to security.
"We believe that it is necessary to advocate a common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable Asian security concept. We need to innovate our security concepts, establish a new regional security cooperation design, and jointly build a road for security in Asia that is shared by all."
Xi Jinping says China, as the the new holder of the CICA presidency, would like to see the grouping be a platform for security cooperation among all Asian countries.
"It's the Chinese plan to increase dialogue and cooperation with each party step by step, as well as discuss and draw up regional security conduct codes and new Asian security partnerships. China is willing to establish regular communication with countries in the region. We would like to focus on 3 areas. We are exploring ways to set up an Asian law enforcement security forum, as well as security centers. We also want to help countries in the region better coordinate when it comes to major security events."
Xi Jinping also says Asia needs to adopt a zero-tolerance attitude toward terrorism, separatism and extremism.
As part of his keynote speech, the Chinese President also says this country's peaceful rise stems from Asia, depends on Asia and benefits Asia.
He also notes its the Chinese mandate to deal with territorial disputes through peaceful means.
"China has always worked hard to resolve issues around territorial sovereignty through peaceful means. We have already completely resolved border issues with 12 of our 14 neighbours through friendly negotiations."
CICA now has 26 member nations.
The grouping was first established in 1992 as a way for Asian countries to come together to discuss security and development challenges.
