Hague seeks Syrian resolution support

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has expressed support for a proposed UN resolution on Syria and said that Russia would be increasingly isolated across the Arab world if it vetoed it.

The Western-Arab drive to adopt a UN resolution on Syria is a "path to civil war", Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov has warned.

The resolution will be discussed at an imminent UN Security Council meeting on the deepening Syrian crisis.
