Western countries presented the UN Security Council late Wednesday with a draft resolution on humanitarian aid for Syria but Russia so far does not back it, raising the risk of a veto.
The vote on the draft, which involved intense negotiations with Russia, Syria's main ally, is expected Friday.
Its presentation to the council was confirmed in a tweet by the Australian ambassador Gary Quinlan.
The text was sponsored by Australia, Luxembourg and Jordan and its supporters include Britain, the United States and France.
