Falk predictably lambasted Israel for its "annexationist policies", winning praise from Qatar, Pakistan, South Africa, Algeria and Indonesia.

Jordan, meanwhile, said it supports the Palestinians' right to a state, but within the framework of a final settlement with Israel. The European Union representative, however, said that the body did not favor Falk's report, but that the EU agrees Israeli actions in the West Bank and east Jerusalem are wrong.  
Also speaking was Austrian President Heinz Fischer, in a high-level appearance for such a debate.
