U.S.-Lithuanian agreement on security of military information

U.S. Defense Secretary William Perry and Lithuanian Defense Minster Linas Linkevicius on November 21 signed an agreement on exchanging classified military information, Radio Lithuania reported. This is the only agreement that Perry will sign during his six-day trip to the Baltic states, Denmark, Macedonia, and Austria. Perry told a press conference in Vilnius that U.S. military aid to Lithuania would be doubled next year, with the number of students training at U.S. military academies increasing from 10 to 30. He also noted that the U.S. Congress is debating a law that would provide for sending surplus military technology and armaments to Lithuania.
