He called for enabling the Palestinians for its self-determination, gaining freedom and living independent to the side of the state of Israel in peace and good neighboring.

Abbas also said that he had discussed with his Lithuanian counterpart the current escalation of violence, terrorism and radicalism practiced by Israel on the Palestinian people.

"Our position is clear and firm that it is necessary to find political solutions to the current problems through out dialogues, and gather all efforts to confront extremism and terrorism in the region," said Abbas.

For her part, Grybauskaite who arrived in Ramallah earlier Tuesday said her country backs the option of the two states through out peaceful negotiations that enable both states to live in peace together.

She also expressed readiness that her country would be "so happy" to encourage the two sides to get back to the peace process and enable the Palestinians to live in peace and a better living condition.
