Chinese President Xi Jinping said planning ahead was only way to 'maintain the civilisation of humanity' while speaking at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in Qingdao on Sunday. He also said that democratisation in international relations was an 'unstoppable trend in this era,' despite 'hegemonism and power politics.' «The SCO is a great creation in the theory and practice of... Еще international relations,» Xi said. «It creates a new model for regional cooperation and makes new contributions to regional peace and development.» This year's two-day summit marks the 18th edition and is set to include Pakistan and India as full members after they joined at Astana 2017. The summit takes place from June 9 -10.
