British Foreign Secretary William Hague told The Associated Press Friday that the international community was concerned about stability, and would not make a specific demand on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to quit immediately.

Hague said that leaders across the Arab world must meet the "natural human demand for more open and flexible political systems," and added that protests which have stretched from Tunisia to Yemen were an urgent reminder of the need for progress on Middle East peace.

"It underlines the need to drive ahead with the Middle East peace process. I hope that it underlines to Israeli leaders the need to do that, because events may complicate still further the politics of the Middle East."
