International envoy Kofi Annan has asked the U.N. Security Council to delay a vote planned for later on Wednesday on a Western-backed resolution that threatens Syrian authorities with sanctions in a bid to end the 16-month conflict, Britain said.

"Joint Special Envoy Annan has asked to delay today's draft Syria resolution vote. With fellow co-sponsors (of the resolution) we're considering that request," the British U.N. mission said on Twitter.
