REF: SECSTATE 102464

(U) Lithuania intends to send both Defense and Foreign
Affairs Ministry officials to the July 20-21 Provincial
Reconstruction Team effectiveness conference in Budapest. We
delivered the invitation, agenda, and Lithuania-specific
questions to Alvydas Kunigelis, Director of International
Relations at the Ministry of Defense and Vytautas Leskavicius
of the MFA's Security Policy Department. Kunigelis told us
that he had already heard about the conference and that the
Ministry would send one or two representatives. Leskavicius
told us that the MFA would coordinate with the Defense
Ministry and let us know soon who would make up the
Lithuanian delegation. Both officials said that Lithuania is
enthusiastic about the conference and eager to participate.
