SUBJECT: LITHUANIA: STRONG SUPPORTER OF EU SANCTIONS ON 
BURMA 
 
REF: SECSTATE 45471 
 
We delivered reftel points to Diana Mickeviciene, Head of the 
MFA's Asia, Pacific, and Latin America Division, on May 6. 
She said that within the EU the GOL "stands with the 
hardliners" when it comes to sanctions on Burma and 
dissatisfaction with Burma's upcoming referendum.  She noted, 
however, that the GOL will not issue its own statement 
condemning Burma.  The reason, she said, is "practical, not 
political" -- the MFA has only two staff that cover the whole 
of Asia, so it is rare that issues in Asia get priority 
attention.
