Hague hails 'ground-breaking' Syria weapons vote

William Hague has welcomed a "ground-breaking" United Nations resolution to secure and destroy Syria's chemical weapons, but called for greater efforts to end the suffering of its people.

The Foreign Secretary said the unanimous UN Security Council resolution was about "ensuring" that the horrors of the Assad regime's chemical attacks never happened again.

He claimed the focus was now on "the everyday horrors of the dire humanitarian situation" in Syria ahead of a new round of diplomatic discussions regarding Syria in Geneva in mid-November.
