The United Nations Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution aimed at establishing peace in Syria.
The document, approved by the United States, Russia, China, France, the UK and the 10 other nations, endorses an international roadmap for a peace process in the war-torn country.
Diplomats say it will endorse the previously agreed timetable for creating a transitional government in Syria and the holding of UN-monitored elections.
All parties will be expected to “immediately cease any attacks against civilians and civilian objects”.
The text of the resolution also says the “Syrian people will decide the future of Syria”.
