Classified By: DCM Damian R. Leader for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d) 
 
¶1. (C) MoND Undersecretary Andrius Krivas told Post September 
11 that the Lithuanians are still considering their position 
on authorizing ISAF to participate in drug interdiction 
activity in Afghanistan (reftel).  He did speculate however 
that if they agree to it, Lithuanian SOF operating in the 
south would take part but personnel at the 
Lithuanian-operated PRT in Ghor province would not -- Krivas 
said the PRT would be "too exposed" to retribution. 
 
¶2. (C) U/S Krivas also said he appreciated that we are not 
proposing ISAF participate in crop eradication, something 
that would run counter to Lithuanian troops' current 
operating policy for Afghanistan. 
 
¶3. (C) U/S Krivas promised to relay our position on ISAF CN 
activity to MajGen Vaiksnoras, Lithuania's probable 
representative to the NATO Chiefs of Defense meeting 
September 12 in Brussels.
