On May 16 we met with Juozas Darulis and Livita Kretkovskiene 
of the Ministry of Transport's Water Transport Department to 
discuss reftel.  They thanked us for the reftel information 
and said they would need to discuss GMP ideas with their 
neighbors.  Admiral Macijauskas, the Commander of the 
Lithuanian Navy, attended the International Seapower 
Symposium (ISS) in October 2007, where U.S. maritime 
strategy, including GMPs, was discussed.  The Admiral told 
Post's Naval Attach that GMPs are good in concept but he 
would prefer more concrete proposals.  Examples of GMPs in 
which the Lithuanian navy presently participates include NATO 
and BALTRON.
