NZ drafts Syria resolution

New Zealand has given the United Nations Security Council a draft resolution demanding an end to all attacks that could kill civilians in Syria.

This comes just days after Russia vetoed a French draft resolution that would have demanded an end to "all aerial bombardments of and military flights over Aleppo city".

The draft resolution demands an "end to all attacks which may result in the death or injury of civilians or damage to civilian objects in Syria, in particular those carried out by air in Aleppo".

International relations expert Robert Patman joined Paul Henry to discuss.
