REF: SECSTATE 61739 
 
We delivered reftel points to Viktoras Meizis, Director of 
the Ministry of Health's Foreign Relations Division, on May 
¶11.  He said that the Health Minister, the Minister's 
secretary, and he would be going to the Geneva meeting.  The 
 
SIPDIS 
MFA will not send anyone from Vilnius; it will be represented 
by the Lithuanian Ambassador in Geneva.  Regarding smallpox, 
he said the GOL agrees there should be no rush to set a date 
for destruction of the live virus.  He added, however, that 
the GOL is still waiting to hear more on this from the EU. 
He said that the GOL has done a lot of preparation work for 
Pandemic Influenza and for Avian Influenza in particular.  He 
agreed that sharing of influenza virus samples is important 
but cautioned that it must be done carefully.  He also agreed 
that insufficient vaccine supply is a global concern and a 
concern in Lithuania as well.
