SUBJECT: ACTION REQUEST: LITHUANIA OFFERS RECIPROCAL 
SUPPORT FOR UNIVERSAL POSTAL UNION ELECTION 
 
REF: A. STATE 66814 
     ¶B. VILNIUS 533 
 
This is an action request.  On July 18 we received a 
diplomatic note in response to ref A diplomatic note, in 
which the GOL proposed "an arrangement of reciprocal support" 
at the Council of Administration elections at the UPU 
Congress (July 23-August 12), whereby Lithuania would support 
the U.S. candidacy in exchange for USG support for 
Lithuania's candidacy to the same body.  We have told the GOL 
regarding this issue as well as the upcoming UNESCO elections 
that the USG has a policy of judging each vote on its merits 
and does not enter into arrangements of reciprocal support. 
The note requests written confirmation, should we agree to 
this proposal.  Action request:  Department please provide 
guidance for a response.
