¶1.  (C) We discussed reftel points with Donatas Ziugzda and 
Rigale Karciauskaite of the MFA's Arms Control, 
Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Divison on October 26. 
They planned to contact Lithuania's EU representative office 
in Brussels with reftel information.  They suggested that 
Lithuania could, via its involvement with the EU working 
groups on export control or nonproliferation, raise the 
concerns related to Iran.  In addition, they mentioned that 
they would keep this information in mind when considering 
approving Lithuanian exports to Iran or for future requests 
from Iranian officials for visits to Lithuania. 
 
¶2.  (C) According to Ziugzda, Lithuania does not have 
extensive trade or relations with Iran.  The MFA considers 
some requests to export Lithuanian products to Iran, as part 
of an interministerial group which is activated when a 
request for an export license is received by the Ministry of 
the Economy for products on EU or Lithuanian control lists. 
In this setting, the MFA has previously stopped any exports 
to Iran it considered inappropriate.
