Russia has said a resolution on Syria passed by the UN General Assembly undermines peace efforts there, as fighting continues on the ground.

Moscow's UN envoy, Vitaly Churkin, told reporters the resolution was one-sided and supported the armed opposition.

Western nations praised the resolution, which passed by 133 votes to 12 with 31 abstentions.
