UNITED NATIONS - An influential association of Islamic states has complained about a European draft resolution that asks the UN Security Council to condemn Syria and demanded that part of the text be deleted.

Western diplomats said the complaint from the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) highlighted the uphill battle Western powers face as they struggle to bring a divided Security Council together to criticize Damascus.

Britain, France, Germany and Portugal circulated the draft resolution to the 15-nation council this week. Veto powers Russia and China and four other non-permanent members have voiced concerns about the draft, which rebukes Syria for its bloody crackdown against anti-government protesters.
