SANYA, Hainan - China on Tuesday called on countries along the Lancang-Mekong River to make the upcoming leaders' meeting fruitful for future cooperation.

Premier Li Keqiang made the remarks while addressing a welcoming banquet prior to the first Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC) Leaders' Meeting to be held on Wednesday in Sanya, a coastal city in southern China's Hainan Province.

Li, and Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha; Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen; Lao Prime Minister Thongsing Thammavong; Vice President of Myanmar Sai Mauk Kham; and Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh will attend the "shared river, shared future" themed meeting.

The LMC will also supplement relations between China and ASEAN, the premier added.
