China’s Communist Party enshrined its opposition to Taiwanese independence in its constitution on Saturday, according to a resolution released at the end of its twice-a-decade congress.
“(The Congress) agrees to include in the Party Constitution statements on… resolutely opposing and deterring separatists seeking ‘Taiwan independence’,” the resolution said.
The key meeting also endorsed Xi Jinping’s “core position” among its leadership, all but assuring he will be handed an unprecedented third term in power.
All party members will be obliged to “uphold Comrade Xi Jinping’s core position on the Party Central Committee and in the Party as a whole”, according to a unanimously passed resolution on changes to the party charter.
