SUBJECT: LITHUANIA PLEASED WITH U.S.-EU COOPERATION ON 
PRISONERS OF CONSCIENCE DECLARATION 
 
REF: A. STATE 63968 B. STATE 61034 
 
Darius Staniulis, head of the MFA's Human Rights and NGOs 
division, told us on June 17 that he was pleased that U.S.-EU 
cooperation was able to produce the Prisoners of Conscience 
Declaration. He added that he was pleased to see the USG 
continue its focus on human rights, especially in the context 
of the USG's disengagement from the UNHRC (ref B). He 
thanked us for the copy of the press release but noted it was 
unlikely the GOL would issue one of its own. He added, 
though, that he would discuss that suggestion with his 
colleagues in the MFA and in New York.
