UN Security Council members have reached agreement on a draft resolution that would punish the recruitment and financing of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria and demand that all al-Qaeda-linked groups disarm and disband immediately, diplomats said Thursday.


Britain's UN Mission, which currently holds the council presidency, said the resolution will be put to a vote at 3 pm EST (10 pm Jerusalem time) on Friday. Diplomats expect it to be approved unanimously.
