    There is relief in New York as Russia and the US have agreed on a draft resolution calling on Syria to relinquish its chemical weapons. The Security Council, which has been deadlocked since 2011 on the Syrian conflict, approved the deal late on Thursday.

    Foreign ministers have changed their travel plans, as the UN expects the vote on the hard-won deal later this Friday.
