Egypt on Sunday evening called on the international community to continue pressuring Israel over the approval of an east Jerusalem construction plan, in order to force the Jewish state to "stop its provocative moves," Israel Radio reported.

The Interior Ministry's approval on Thursday of a plan to build 1,600 new housing units in the Jewish Ramat Shlomo neighborhood has been condemned by the US, UN and the Palestinian Authority.

The international criticism must continue so that the world knows Israel is not interested in peace and is working to undermine peace efforts, after the Palestinians and Arabs proposed to hold indirect peace talks, Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki was quoted as saying.

Zaki reportedly went on to say that Washington now understands that the Israeli government is not working to promote peace.
