The five permanent UN Security Council members have met in New York to discuss a resolution on making safe Syrias chemical weapons.

 

A resolution is seen as a key step in a US-Russia brokered plan under which Syria will disclose its arsenal within a week and eliminate it by mid-2014.

 

However, there have already been key disagreements over the wording.

 

France, the UK and US want a resolution carrying the threat of military action but Russia opposes this.
