SHANGHAI -- China's Communist Party extolled President Xi Jinping's leadership in a communique issued Wednesday, citing an "all-out war" on COVID-19, efforts to calm "chaos" in Hong Kong after mass pro-democracy protests and a pushback against Taiwanese independence.

The sweeping statement from the party's Central Committee came at the end of a four-day plenary meeting in Beijing, where the country's national congress is set to kick off Sunday to choose China's next slate of leaders.
