SUBJECT: LITHUANIA PREPARES TO RECOGNIZE KOSOVO WITHOUT 
UNSCR IF NECESSARY 
 
REF: STATE 109526 
 
Classified By: AMBASSADOR JOHN CLOUD FOR REASONS 1.4 (B) AND (D) 
 
¶1. (C) We delivered reftel points to Giedre Gelezeviciene of 
the MFA's European Union Enlargement Division.  Gelezeviciene 
said that Lithuanian FM Petras Vaitiekunas had said that one 
country could not hold the process hostage as Kosovo moves 
towards independence.  She said that the GOL would follow the 
lead of the United States and Great Britain if the 120 days 
of intensive engagement do not bear fruit. 
 
¶2. (C) Gelezeviciene said that the MFA was already making 
plans for how to present the issue to the parliament if there 
is a need to recognize Kosovo's independence without a UNSCR. 
 She said the MFA is preparing for all scenarios.
