Russia pushes for UN security council support for Syria ceasefire

Moscow, Russia is pushing for a UN security council vote to support the ceasefire it helped to broker in Syria, where the truce remains largely intact on its second day despite sporadic clashes.

Moscow says it wants the UN to be involved in peace talks between Damascus and rebels due to take place in Kazakhstan in January, although the organisation is negotiating its own separate peace efforts.

Turkeyand Russia, which brokered the truce, say the talks in Astana aim to supplement the UN’s peace efforts, rather than replace them. They want to involve regional players such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan.
