Opposition: UN needs to keep up threat of Syria sanctions

NEW YORK - The United Nations should keep threatening Syrian authorities with sanctions to "breathe life" into a faltering plan to end the worsening 16-month conflict, Syria's main opposition umbrella group said on Tuesday before a planned UN Security Council vote on the issue.

The Syrian National Council said it has been meeting in New York with ambassadors from countries on the UN Security Council to press for stronger action from the 15-member body to enforce international envoy Kofi Annan's six-point peace plan for Syria.
