HANOI, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said here on Saturday that the East Asia Summit had boosted the mutual understandings among all the member states and promoted peace, stability and development in the region since its establishment five years ago.

Addressing the the Fifth East Asia Summit, Wen said the summit had stuck to the orientation of the strategic forum "led by leaders" and launched fruitful dialogue and cooperation in five key fields, namely finance, energy, education, bird flu control and disaster rescue.

Currently the regional and international situation is experiencing profound and complicated changes and the East Asian countries are facing new chances and challenges for further development, he said.

China is ready to work together with other parties to deepen East Asian cooperation by upholding the established principles and purposes of the East Asia Summit, he said.

While centrality of ASEAN must be respected in the process of East Asia integration, efforts are also needed to enable the existing mechanism to play their role, such as the summit between China and ASEAN (10+1), the summit between ASEAN, China, Japan and South Korea (10+3) and the summit of China, Japan and South Korea, said Premier Wen.

He added that China would like to discuss with all its partners the proposals for the economic integration in East Asia and jointly promote the regional peace, stability and development.

He said China welcomes the participation of Russia and the United States in the East Asia Summit, expressing the hope that the two countries would play a constructive role.

Premier Wen also highlighted that China has steadfast determination, explicit policy and positive measures to develop a relationship based on good-neighborliness and mutual benefits.

He said he believed with the joint efforts by all the partners, cooperation in the East Asia would make constant progress and reach a higher level.

The participating leaders spoke highly of the achievements made by East Asian cooperation, vowing to join hands to achieve common prosperity and create a brighter future for regional cooperation.

The fifth East Asia Summit (EAS) opened here Saturday, where leaders of ASEAN and six dialogue partners gathered to discuss strategic issues of relevance to the region.

The six dialogue partners include China, Japan, South Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand. ASEAN groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were invited to attend this year's EAS as special guests.
