UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council on Thursday endorsed West African political efforts to end unrest in Mali but stopped short of backing military intervention in the West African state, where al-Qaida-linked militants control significant territory.

Mali's neighbors have been seeking UN backing for armed intervention to stabilize the country. In June, the Security Council asked the African Union and West African group ECOWAS to explain more precisely what kind of resolution they want.

Thursday's resolution from the council did not give them the backing they sought, but not did rule it out in the future. I t did, however, express full support for ECOWAS and AU mediation efforts in Mali.

The French-drafted resolution said the council "expresses its readiness to further examine the request of ECOWAS once additional information has been provided regarding the objectives, means and modalities of the envisaged deployment."
