SUBJECT: LITHUANIA: 2005 COUNTRY REPORTS ON TERRORISM 
 
REF: STATE 193439 
 
¶1.  General assessment: No acts of international terrorism of 
major significance occurred in Lithuania during 2005. 
Lithuania is not designated as a state sponsor of terrorism, 
and has not otherwise been determined by the Secretary of 
State to be subject to the Country Reports on Terrorism. 
 
¶2.  Sanctuary/Haven Assessment:  Lithuania is not being used 
as a sanctuary or safe haven for terrorists. 
 
¶3.  There are no known terrorist groups operating in 
Lithuania. 
 
¶4.  Government of Lithuania international cooperation: 
Lithuania is a recent inductee to the European Union (EU), 
and therefore benefits from EU anti-terrorism training and 
assistance.  During 2005, the USG has funded numerous border 
security initiatives reinforcing immigration control and the 
nonproliferation of materials related to the manufacture of 
Weapons of Mass Destruction.  Under the auspices of the 
Department of State Export Control and Border Security (EXBS) 
program, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the 
Department of Energy (DOE) provided several training and 
assistance programs on border security as well as on 
detection and nonproliferation of WMD materials.  Training 
for Lithuanian officials was conducted in Lithuania, 
Kazakhstan, and the United States.  EXBS has also trained and 
equipped Lithuanian border officials with thermal imaging and 
X-ray florescence detection devices.  In addition, Lithuania 
is one of the USG's closest allies in the Global War on 
Terror, with troops on the ground in such hotspots as Iraq 
and Afghanistan.
