SUBJECT: IRAN CANCELLED VISIT TO LITHUANIA; GOL SHARES
USG'S CONCERNS ABOUT IAEA'S PLAN FOR IRAN

REF: A. STATE 124823

B. STATE 124747
C. STATE 123352

1. Charge delivered ref A points to Zygimantas Pavilionis,
Under Secretary in the MFA, on September 10. We delivered
ref B and C points at the working level to Rimgaile
Karciauskaite, Second Secretary in the MFA's Arms Control,
Non-proliferation and Disarmament Division, on September 6.
Karciauskaite told us the GOL agrees that meeting UNSC
requirements and the additional protocol concerns should be
taken into consideration in the IAEA's plan for Iran. We
have discussed the issue of bilateral contact between the GOL
and the GOI on several occasions with Lina Antanaviciene,
Director of the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Pacific
Department.

2. Karciauskaite also told us that the Iranian delegation
that had been scheduled to meet with GOL officials on
September 7 cancelled its visit. Karciauskaite said perhaps
the cancellation was because of the low level officials that
the GOL offered for meetings. The GOL did not offer
requested meetings with the Foreign Minister, the Speaker of
the Parliament, and the deputy Foreign Minister. The GOL did
agree to a requested meeting with the Chairman of the
Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee and offered a meeting
with one of the MFA's Under Secretaries.
