REF: STATE 109212 
 
¶1. MFA's Director of Development Cooperation and Democracy 
Promotion Renatas Juska told Post October 15 that the GOL 
plans to make a pledge of one million euros, to be spread 
over two years, at the Georgia Donors Conference October 22. 
Juska said that the Lithuanians intend their pledge to go 
toward the Joint Needs Assessment's social sector goals -- 
investment in health, education, and agriculture.  He noted 
the need for IDP assistance but said he expects that will 
come from other, wealthier sources. 
 
¶2. Comment: Post was heartened to hear of the Lithuanian 
financial commitment to the Georgians.  Though not large 
relative to USG or EU level contributions, it nonetheless 
represents a significant percentage of Lithuania's 
development budget.
