¶1.  (C) On October 29 we met with Donatas Ziugzda, Head of 
the MFA's Arms Control, Non-Proliferation and Disarmament 
Division to discuss reftel.  Ziugzda promised to consider the 
information and discuss it with the head of the Threat 
Analysis, Crisis Management and International Operations 
Division, 
Gintaras Stonys.  In addition, he said that the GOL would 
inform Lithuanian banks to exercise greater vigilance with 
any transactions that involve Iranian entities.  Also, 
Ziugzda noted that the GOL has a political obligation to 
follow FATF guidelines.  Although the GOL is not a member of 
FATF, it does follow its recommendations when drafting legal 
guidance.
