The assembly was due to vote on Friday on the non-binding
resolution, which criticises the U.N. Security Council for
failing to take action on Syria, after a vote planned for
Thursday was postponed to make time for negotiations on proposed
revisions.

The latest draft was toned down by removing language
explicitly backing Arab League calls for Assad to resign and
supporting sanctions.

Western diplomats said they hoped that would raise the
number of votes in favour of the resolution to at least 100,
although they said many other countries were likely to abstain.
