A road map to peace in Syria?

A rare show of unity among world powers produces a UN resolution on peace talks for Syria.

Nearly five years and a quarter of a million lives have been lost over the course of the Syrian war.

But now a resolution may, at last, be in view.

The UN Security Council voted unanimously to back a resolution which outlines the framework for a political transition over the next year and a half.

But it leaves some major questions unanswered, including what happens to Syria’s president.

On Inside Story, a discussion on how the resolution will be implemented.
