 (C) We delivered reftel points regarding Iran to Vaclovas 
Salkauskas, head of the MFA's Middle East Division, January 
¶13.  Salkauskas said that Lithuania stands fully behind the 
EU-3 and USG position to refer Iran to the UN Security 
Council in response to Iran's recent steps toward uranium 
enrichment.  Salkauskas noted that, during consultations in 
December, MFA representatives stressed to the Iranian 
Ambassador (resident in Warsaw) the importance of Iran's full 
cooperation with the EU-3.  Salkauskas also commented that 
the GOL remains suspicious of Russian and Chinese economic 
interests in Iran and is concerned that these interests could 
affect the Security Council's ability to take strong measures 
against Iran.  Lithuania strongly believes that the 
international community must maintain a common position and 
send a strong signal to Iran.
