Classified By: DCM Damian R. Leader for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d) 
 
(C) MFA Head of Common Foreign and Security Policy Egidijus 
Navikas confirmed to Post November 6 that Lithuania will not 
join the expected consensus at next week's GAERC on resuming 
post-PCA negotiations with Russia.  The Lithuanian Government 
understands the number of EU allies wishing to delay 
resumption is dwindling but the Lithuanians are still against 
resuming talks with Russia and can not bring themselves to 
join any consensus agreeing to do so.  Despite this stand, 
Navikas said he fully expects France will find some way of 
dealing with the lack of consensus procedurally and the EU 
will resume post-PCA negotiations in any event.
