Security Council postpones vote on Syria draft resolution till Saturday

Security Council
The Security Council has postponed a vote on a draft resolution demanding a 30-day ceasefire across Syria, till 12 pm EST (1700 GMT) on Saturday, said Kuwaiti ambassador to the United Nations Mansour Al-Otaibi.

Al-Otaibi, who is president of the Security Council for the month of February, said the council members failed to reach consensus on Friday after rounds of closed-door consultations.

He said the council members were "very close" to consensus but failed to close all the gaps.

"We are working to have a consensual draft resolution and hopefully the council will be united and all of them -- the 15 -- will vote in favor," he told reporters.
