Pyongyang, February 4 (KCNA) -- A Palestinian official on Tuesday accused Israel of spoiling the international vision of the two-state solution based on 1967 borders, by expanding 70 Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Mohamed Ghuneim, Palestinian minister for Israeli settlement affairs, said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua that Israel has recently "unprecedentedly escalated the settlement activities on the territories it is still seizing in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, adding that "this aims at changing realities on the ground by the expansion of settlements."
