US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Monday he is delaying a key vote on authorizing the use of force in Syria to let President Barack Obama publicly address the issue.

Earlier in the day, the top Obama ally in US Congress had scheduled the crucial test vote for Wednesday but then backtracked to letvot the US leader sell his plan on strikes against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

"I want to make sure the president (makes) his case to the Senate and the US people before voting on this matter," Reid said.
