Post raised reftel points November 24 with Julius Rakitskis,
head of MFA's human-rights division. He said recent
discussions indicated that Lithuania probably would again
abstain on the resolutions reaffirming the existence of three
UN bodies dealing with Palestinians. The final decision,
however, has yet to be made and he said our arguments would
be considered.
