EU leaders had agreed last December to review the ban after France said the embargo had outlived its usefulness.
But a number of member states argue China needs to do much more to safeguard human rights.
Diplomatic sources say Denmark and Britain in particular do not believe the moment is opportune to end the ban.
Others, including Sweden and the Netherlands, fear reactions from their parliaments and domestic public opinion, the sources added.
Europe also faces pressure from the United States, which firmly opposes ending the embargo.
But a French source said here Friday France would not give up, reiterating France's view that the embargo was outdated.
