China criticized Israel's move to expand the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo, saying it posed new obstacles to the Middle East peace process.
The remarks by China's Foreign Ministry on Thursday added to a chorus of American, European and Palestinian objections.
A Jerusalem planning committee announced this week it would press forward with construction of some 900 apartments in the neighborhood.
