   2015-11-23 08:18:59    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Mao

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has raised a five-point proposal in an attempt to stabilize the situation in the South China Seas during the annual East Asian summit in Kuala Lumpur.

It comes as leaders from the 10 ASEAN states, three East Asian nations, India, Australia, New Zealand, the US and Russia joined the summit on Sunday.

Premier Li said countries should stick to the UN charter as well as the principles of international law to settle sovereignty and jurisdictional-related disputes through consultation.

Li Keqiang said he hoped countries could soon carry out the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Premier called on countries outside the region to refrain from taking action that might cause tension.

Prime Minister of the host nation Malaysia Najib Razak also stressed the role of "international principle" in the summit's opening remarks.

This is the tenth East Asian Summit since 2005.

Membership has been expanded to 18 countries following the entry of the US and Russia in 2011.
