The Ambassador participated in a ceremony at Vilnius Airport 
to officially transfer ownership of radiation detection 
equipment from the U.S. DOE to Lithuania's State Border Guard 
Service (SBGS).  A copy of the signed transfer of ownership 
document was sent by email to DOE's NNSA office on February 
¶23.  The detection equipment, which is valued  over USD 1M, 
was donated to SBGS as part of DOE's Second Line of Defense 
program.  During the property transfer ceremony Ambassador 
Derse underscored President Obama's commitment to prevent 
terrorists from acquiring nuclear and radioactive materials. 
After the ceremony concluded the Ambassador toured the 
airport facilities and observed a demonstration of the 
equipment's functionality.  The Ambassador thanked the SBGS 
for the demonstration and noted that the radiation detection 
equipment is certain to thwart attempts to transport 
hazardous material through Vilnius Airport.
