    A previous version of this story incorrectly reported that Hong Kong and Taiwan were mentioned for the first time in a historic resolution adopted by the Communist Party. The issues were mentioned in a communique issued by the party, while the resolution has not been made public yet. Deng Xiaoping’s previous historic resolution in 1981 also mentioned Taiwan. We have updated the story to correct these errors.
