SUBJECT: LITHUANIAN RESPONSE TO U.S. NON-PAPER ON ADAPTED 
CFE RATIFICATION 
 
REF: STATE 116194 
 
Classified By: DCM DAMIAN LEADER FOR REASONS 1.4 (B) AND (D) 
 
¶1. (C) We delivered reftel non-paper to Algis Dabkus, 
Director of the Security Policy Department at the MFA. 
Dabkus expressed surprise at the fast-paced timeline.  He 
said that the GOL has always been willing to ratify the 
Adapted CFE Treaty once the Istanbul Commitments are met. 
 
¶2. (C) Dabkus said the GOL would need time to look over the 
non-paper before providing significant feedback; it would 
require deep analysis.  He promised a more detailed response 
and more questions prepared in time for the bilateral CFE 
meeting on August 29 with the USG Delegation led by DAS Karin 
Look. Dabkus asked if Lithuania would have a seat at the 
table if the consultations on Baltic/Slovenian accession to 
Adapted CFE took place in the framework of the CFE Joint 
Consultative Group and not at the NATO-Russia Council. 
 
¶3. (C) On a related subject, Dabkus asked if the USG was 
aware of a meeting to be hosted October 1 by the German 
Foreign Minister on the CFE treaty, and showed us the 
invitation sent to FM Vaitiekunas.  Dabkus asked how this 
meeting fits in with the USG timeline.  We responded that we 
would need to get back to him on these questions.
