SHANGHAI -- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday called on all nations to defend the status quo of the United Nations-backed international order, batting off attempts by the U.S. to expand Taiwan's participation in the global organization.

Xi's comments came in a speech in Beijing at a meeting to mark the 50th anniversary of China's admission to the UN. On Oct. 25, 1971, the UN General Assembly passed Resolution 2758 to include the People's Republic of China in the body, replacing the Republic of China -- the official name of Taiwan.
