JAKARTA, Indonesia — US President Barack Obama on Tuesday criticized Israel's plans to build new apartments in east Jerusalem.

"This kind of activity is never helpful when it comes to peace negotiations," Obama during a news conference in Indonesia.

The president said his efforts to improve the relationship between Muslims and the West have been "earnest" and "sustained." Still, he said the progress is "incomplete" and there is more work to do.
