The meeting, Toyberg-Frandzen recalled, was the first since the Council had failed to adopt a draft resolution calling for Israel’s withdrawal from territories occupied since 1967 by 2017 (see Press Release SC/11722 of 30 December 2014), following which Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas took steps to accede to the International Criminal Court’s Rome Statute. Following that briefing, the Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine and the representative of Israel took the floor. Following those statements, some 45 speakers took the floor to comment on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as on the Syrian crisis and the spread of extremist groups in the region, with some in that context condemning the Paris attacks and calling for stronger international action against terrorism. Also speaking today were the representatives of Chile (in his national capacity), United States, United Kingdom, China, Spain, Angola, Nigeria, Jordan, Malaysia, Russian Federation, Venezuela, Chad, France, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia (on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and in his national capacity), Iran, Egypt, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Guatemala, Iceland, India, Brazil, South Africa, Cuba, Syria, Tunisia, Sri Lanka, Qatar, Turkey, Japan, Peru, Kuwait, Liechtenstein, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Morocco. Representatives of the European Union delegation and the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People also spoke. The representatives of Israel and Saudi Arabia took the floor again at the end of the debate.
