Israel accused Iran and Syria of antisemitism over their opposition to its resolution on agriculture technology for sustainable development which was approved 140-1, with 34 abstentions. Syria was the sole opponent of the text, with its representative explaining that Israel lacked the moral authority to submit such a text given the "atrocities it has committed against the Palestinian and Syrian people." He added, "If you have no shame, you can do whatever you want."

Iran didn't vote at all. Its representative explained that "we don't recognize the so-called state of Israel. So we didn't vote against or in favor of this resolution." Most of the Arab group — including Jordan, Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Sudan — abstained. Morocco was absent.
