(C) MFA First Secretary for Arms Control Rimgaile 
Karciauskaite said July 17 that the GOL had reviewed a copy 
of India's proposed safeguards agreement now before the IAEA 
Board of Governors, and it is "probably fine with it."  She 
said Lithuania is happy to bring India into the "IAEA 
mainstream" but that some EU member states have noted that 
India is not party to the NPT and question why safeguard 
exceptions will be granted to them (if the IAEA Board 
approves this agreement).  We responded that these are valid 
concerns but they should not be addressed by the IAEA Board, 
which should only rule on whether the India agreement 
provides effective safeguards.
