¶1. (C) SUMMARY: We delivered reftel points to Gediminas 
Kasputis of the MFA's Common Foreign and Security Policy 
Division on March 28.  Kasputis said that the GOL's positions 
were nearly identical to our positions.  Kasputis asked for 
clarification on several points, and gave details on 
Lithuania's ideas for a European Neighborhood Policy. End 
Summary. 
 
Kosovo 
------ 
 
¶2. (C) Kasputis said that the GOL fully supports the 
Ahtisaari recommendations and that the EU was unified on this 
issue.  He further stated that the GOL supported the timeline 
for successfully concluding the status process. 
 
Iran 
---- 
 
¶3. (C) Kasputis asked what problems or delays existed in 
implementing UNSCR 1737.  He also asked if we believed there 
to be any problems with the GOL's implementation of the 
resolution.  We told Kasputis that we had no indication that 
the USG has any complaints about the GOL's implementation of 
UNSCR 1737. 
 
European Neighborhood Policy 
---------------------------- 
 
¶4. (C) Kasputis said that the GOL was constantly urging 
partners to be more active in supporting the resolution of 
the separatist conflicts and people-to-people exchanges.  He 
also said that while the GOL would like to make progress on 
Belarus at a time when President Lukashenka looks weak and 
isolated, it needed to see some positive step from the 
Belarusian Government, like the release of Alexander Kozulin 
and other political prisoners.  (Comment:  The GOL is a 
strong proponent of an active European Neighborhood Policy.)
