Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull condemned the resolution in a speech to the Central Synagogue in Sydney on Friday, according to Australian Jewish News.

He described the resolution as "deeply unsettling for our community" and "one-sided" and vowed that "Australia stands with Israel. We support Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East... We support a peaceful resolution of the disputes between Israel and the Palestinians... we support a two-state solution just as the government of Israel does."He added that the peace process " not assisted by one-sided resolutions made at the councils of the United Nations or anywhere else, and that is why Australia has not, and does not, support one-sided resolutions," and he emphasized that "above all, we stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel in the fight against terrorists."
