SUBJECT: LITHUANIAN MINISTRIES WORKING ON EUROCONTROL FEE 
 
REF: SECSTATE 182790 
 
 ¶1. (U) We have approached the MFA at various levels to seek 
an exemption of U.S. military and other U.S. state aircraft 
from air navigation, overflight, and terminal navigation 
fees.  MFA Undersecretary Sarunas Adomavicius promised the 
Ambassador on August 31 to look into the matter, and others 
within the MFA from Department director to working level have 
indicated there is political will to grant the exemption. 
Darius Mereckis of MFA's NATO Division said he will 
coordinate with the Ministry of Transportation in order that 
they direct the Lithuanian airport authority not to assess 
such fees against U.S. state and military aircraft and to 
instruct Eurocontrol to cease collection efforts for 
outstanding fees. 
 
¶2. (U) We will follow up aggressively on this matter at 
different agencies and levels.
