Chess Puzzle (19)

The diagram below is a famous chess problem  which many strong GMs (past and present) failed to solve. Some solve it after spending a day or lot of hours over it. Among super GMs who failed to solved it is Paul Keres, Bisguer, Robert Byrnes, Lothar Schmid and the current GMs - Gabriel Sargissian, Evgeny Najer , Daniel Fridman, David Navara, Vugar Gashimov, Viktor Bologan and Ivan Sokolov.

In my case, i of course failed to solve it . Now i give you the chance to prove that you are 'smarter' then the GMs mentioned above. Try to find white only move and it sequences which force a draw. Try it on your own first before asking for assistance... especially from your chess computer program.

White to move and draw!
