FROM AMBASSADOR JOHN A. CLOUD 
 
E.O. 12958: DECL: 05/09/2017 
TAGS: PHUM LH BO SI BK
SUBJECT: LITHUANIA WILL NOT SUPPORT BELARUS FOR HRC SEAT 
 
REF: A) STATE 63345 B) STATE 58036 
 
Classified By: Ambassador John A. Cloud for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d). 
 
(C) Based upon ref B demarche delivered at the working level 
(septel), and on our ongoing senior level conversations 
regarding Belarus, I assess that there is no chance that 
Lithuania will support Belarus for the HRC.  The GOL's 
priority is the success of Slovenia's candidacy.  Its second 
goal for the vote is keeping Belarus from gaining a seat. 
Although it does not firmly support Bosnia, it would prefer 
any third candidate over Belarus.
