Russia's deputy foreign minister says Security Council members have reached agreement on a resolution they plan to adopt on Friday endorsing the way forward on a possible end to Syria's civil war.
"There is an agreement," Gennady Gatilov told reporters.
Diplomats had rushed to overcome divisions on the draft resolution while world powers held the latest talks on how to bring an end to the conflict.
The resolution would be a rare gesture of unity on the Syria peace process by a council often deeply divided on the crisis.
The U.S. and French ambassadors both are expressing optimism as well.
