UNITED NATIONS - Diplomats say UN Security Council members have reached agreement on a draft resolution that would punish recruitment and financing of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria and demand that all al-Qaida-linked groups disarm and disband immediately.


Britain currently holds the council presidency and its UN Mission said the resolution will be put to a vote at 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT) on Friday.


The draft resolution demands that al-Qaida-linked groups including the Islamic State, which has taken control of a large swath of Syria and Iraq, and Jabhat al-Nusra, which is active in Syria, "cease all violence and terrorist acts."
