Syria crisis: UN resolution would 'hold Syria to account', says Hague

A UN resolution is needed as means to "hold Syria to account" if it fails to comply with an agreement to destroy its chemical weapons, the British foreign secretary has said.

William Hague said the pressure was on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, who had used the weapons "repeatedly against the Syrian people".

He said the UK's priority was to secure a UN resolution to enforce the deal.

He was speaking after a Paris meeting with his US and French counterparts about the US-Russian agreement.
