World powers are meeting in New York to try to move forward a tentative plan to bring about a ceasefire in Syria.

Countries on both sides of the conflict are seeking to narrow considerable gaps which stand in the way of progress.

These include the fate of Syria’s president, which groups could join talks with the regime, and which should be classed as terrorists.

According to BBC News, the UN Security Council is expected to vote later on a text backing the broad plan for a truce and negotiations.
