Cairo - Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak urged Israel to halt "all settlement activity" and warned of the dangers it posed in Jerusalem, in talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Cairo on Sunday.

Mubarak "called on Israel to stop all settlement activity, including 'natural growth' settlements", presidential spokesperson Suleiman Awad said after the talks.

The president "also urged (Israel) to stop attempts to judaise Jerusalem, warning of the dangerous consequences to peace efforts and highlighting the sensitivity of the Jerusalem issue to the Arab and Islamic worlds," Awad said.

Netanyahu met Mubarak over "iftar", the meal ending the dawn-to-dusk fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan that was also attended by Egypt's intelligence supremo Omar Suleiman.

The Israeli premier's brief visit came amid a renewal of diplomatic activity around the Irsaeli-Palestinian peace process and coincided with a visit to the region by US envoy George Mitchell.

Egypt, together with the United States, is hoping to see a resumption of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, suspended since the conflict in Gaza last December-January.
