SUBJECT: LITHUANIA WELCOMES USG'S DRAFT ON CONDEMNING RAPE;
WILL REVIEW AND CONSIDER CO-SPONSORSHIP
REF: SECSTATE 135255
We delivered reftel points to Darius Staniulis, head of the
MFA's Human Rights and NGOs Division, on October 1.
Staniulis noted that the GOL is concerned about this issue
and about women's issues in general. He said he would share
the draft with his colleagues. After reviewing the draft,
and dependent on what position the EU might take on the
draft, he and his MFA colleagues will discuss the possibility
of the GOL being a co-sponsor.
