Classified By: DCM Damian R. Leader for reasons 1.4(b) and (d). 
 
(C) We delivered reftel points on February 27 to Julius 
Rakitskis, head of the MFA's Human Rights Division.  He said 
the GOL very much appreciated the decision by the United 
States to resume participation as an observer at the UN Human 
Rights Council (HRC), and hoped the United States would soon 
decide to participate as a full HRC member.  He also said 
Lithuania and almost all EU countries shared the U.S. view 
concerning the draft outcome document for the Durban Review 
Conference, and wished to see changes on the same points that 
disturb the United States.  He thanked the United States for 
making the effort it did in those negotiations.
