¶1. (C) Poloff delivered reftel points September 28 to Donatas 
Vainalavicius, acting head of the MFA's Arms Control and 
Terrorism Prevention Division.  He expressed great interest 
in the information and promised to share it with his 
colleagues.  He also noted that Lithuania has long shared our 
concerns about Iran's nuclear program and supports efforts to 
hold Iran to its international obligations.  He said 
Lithuania would be interested in learning from us whether the 
recent Iranian missile tests were likely to have any effect 
on the October 1 meeting with Iran. 
 
¶2. (C) Charge joined with UK and French Ambassadors to make a 
follow-up joint approach to MFA Political Director Eitvydas 
Bajarunas September 29.  Bajarunas said Lithuania shares our 
concern about the program and Iran,s deceptive behavior.  He 
said Lithuania understands how serious this issue is both for 
regional stability and the credibility of the international 
community, and will go as far as supporting sanctions. 
Lithuania does not have a resident Iranian ambassador, but 
Bajarunas said he would contact the Iranian ambassador in 
Warsaw on the matter and would work with the EU.  Charge 
asked for public support as well, which Bajarunas said he 
would raise with the Foreign Minister.
