(C) MFA Director of the Global Policy Department Lina 
Antanaviciene told Post July 25 that although Lithuania does 
not consider isolation the only way to deal with Syria, 
increased EU engagement will empower the SARG if it is not 
accompanied by strong demands to cease the Syrian role in 
sponsoring terrorism, facilitating the travel of terrorists 
into Iraq, and attempting to destabilize its neighbors to the 
south, Lebanon and Israel.  She noted recent U.S. engagement 
with Iran as a parallel example. On a related note, 
Antanaviciene added that the GOL is mulling a request by the 
Iranian Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs for a visit to 
Lithuania this fall, but she pledged to consult with the 
United States before any decision is made.
