Syria chemical weapons: Hague hails UN resolution

28 September 2013 Last updated at 03:13 BST

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has described the UN resolution on Syrian chemical weapons as "ground-breaking".

At a session in New York, the 15-member body backed the draft document agreed earlier by Russia and the US.

The deal breaks a two-and-a-half year deadlock in the UN over Syria, where fighting between government forces and rebels rages on.
