This collection deals with records regarding Lithuania during the Clinton administration. Located on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea in Northern Europe, Lithuania proclaimed its independence from the Soviet Union on March 11, 1990. Responsive records regarding the newly independent country include letters, memoranda, drafts, Presidential messages, emails, cables, and news articles. The records center around Lithuania’s economic development; the desire to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the European Union (EU) and the World Trade Organization (WTO); the controversial Williams Oil deal; and Holocaust-related issues. There is a great deal of crossover of Clinton-era documents dealing with the Baltic States, and therefore research into the records of Estonia and Latvia is recommended for a more rounded perspective of the region.
