UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council delayed until Thursday a vote on a Western-backed resolution that threatens Syrian authorities with sanctions and is aimed at ending the 16-month conflict, diplomats said on Wednesday.

International envoy Kofi Annan earlier had requested that the vote, which was planned for later on Wednesday, be postponed because he wanted to "ensure all efforts were made for UN Security Council to speak with one voice and agree on concerted pressure," Britain's UN mission said on Twitter.



"We will be voting tomorrow morning," Britain's UN Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant told reporters on Wednesday.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon urged the council to "shoulder its responsibility and take collective and effective action."
