    postpone/put off/delay

    "We are forced to postpone the meeting from Thursday to Friday next week."
    A. Is it true that they have put the meeting off to next Friday?
    B. I am not sure if I understood rightly, I thought they had promised to go through with it by the end of this month, but who knows.
    C. Yes, you are right, they shouldn't have delayed it, but they did - the meeting has been put off by (or for?) almost a week, it will not take place until next Friday!

    is it correct?

    c- 'by' is correct
