REF: A. SECSTATE 100153 
     ¶B. VILNIUS 504 
 
¶1.  (U) As requested by Charge September 29 in his meeting 
with Political Director Eitvydas Bajarunas, the MFA on 
September 30 issued the following statement of concerns about 
Iran's nuclear program in support for action at the October 1 
meeting in Geneva. 
 
¶2.  (U) Begin text.  Lithuania's Ministry of Foreign Affairs 
expresses its serious concern for the recently revealed 
information about the construction of the second Iranian 
uranium enrichment plant and Iran's trials of missile, 
carried out this weekend and on Monday. 
 
We support the efforts of the five UN Security Council 
permanent members (United States, United Kingdom, China, 
France, Russia) and Germany to convince Iran to suspend its 
uranium enrichment program, to obey its international 
commitments and to cooperate with the International Atomic 
Energy Agency (IAEA). 
 
Lithuania supports the European Union, the United States and 
the international community's effort to involve Iran in 
negotiations, and the use of measures of pressure - sanctions 
- if it appears necessary, in order to persuade Iran's 
authorities to comply with its obligations. 
 
We believe that the Geneva meeting with Iran involving China, 
France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the U.S., 
which will take place on 1 October, is a good opportunity to 
demonstrate Iran's willingness to respect its international 
obligations and relevant United Nations Security Council 
resolutions. 
 
As a sign of good will, it would open the way for broader 
international cooperation in weapons of mass destruction 
proliferation control and would enable countries to develop 
civilian nuclear energy, not nuclear weapons.  The Nuclear 
Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference next year will 
become a good opportunity to seek diplomatic solutions and to 
comply with international obligations and requirements.  End
