UN Security Council postpones vote on Syria resolution

(VOVworld) – The UN Security Council on Wednesday postponed vote on a resolution demanding an investigation of the suspected chemical attack in Syria killing at least 72 people on Tuesday. British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft told reporters that the result of the negotiations is unpredictable while French Ambassador Francois Delattre said that negotiations were being held in a good spirit, adding that there is a chance for agreement. US Ambassador Nikki Haley warned that the US will take action against the attacks in Syria if the UN Security Council fails to act.

Britain, France and the United States blame President Bashar al-Assad's forces for the attack, but the Syrian army has denied any involvement. The draft resolution asked UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to report monthly on whether the Syrian government is cooperating with an international investigation and a fact-finding mission into chemical weapons use in Syria.
