China will share the hydrological information on the upper reaches of the Mekong River, known as the Lancang in China, throughout the year to help countries along the river better cope with climate change, droughts and floods, Premier Li Keqiang said on Monday.

Speaking via video link at the third Lancang-Mekong Cooperation leaders' meeting, Li said the six countries along the international river are in fact a community with a shared future.

He called upon the six nations to fully respect each other's legitimate rights in exploring water resources and accommodate each other's interests and concerns.

China will do its best to offer help to the other five countries in better using water resources, he said.

Li highlighted the need for sound implementation of programs for safety of dams and flood early warnings and bolstering the river basin's capacity in comprehensive treatment and water resources management.
