China's ruling Communist Party on Tuesday released the full text of a pivotal resolution on the country's modern history, with expectations solidifying that President Xi Jinping will serve a controversial third term as leader.

The resolution on the major achievements and historical experiences of the party during its 100-year history touted Xi's accomplishments since he became its leader in 2012, while highly evaluating his policies on Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The document, which was adopted at a four-day sixth plenary session of the 19th Central Committee through last Thursday, also identified the quashed pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989 as a "political disturbance."
