SUBJECT: LITHUANIA LIKELY TO ABSTAIN ON GOLDSTONE REPORT 
RESOLUTION 
 
REF: STATE 15722 
 
Classified By: Deputy Chief of Mission Damian R. Leader for reasons 1.4 
(b) and (d) 
 
(C)  We delivered reftel points to Rita Kazragiene, deputy 
director of the MFA's United Nations, International 
Organizations and Human Rights Department.  She responded 
February 24 that Lithuania wanted to come as close as 
possible to consensus with other EU missions and was still 
talking with other EU countries to determine where the 
majority stood on the resolution.  She said, however,  an 
abstention (which is what Lithuania did in November) was much 
more likely than a 'yes' vote, while voting 'no' was not 
being considered.
