Who Should Have the Right to Speak to Lithuanians?

Paul Pillar wonders:

"Should the political authority in whatever state hosts the [alien] contact effort (right now that would be the United States) have the right to determine what is said to the beings in another world? If not, who would have that right? If we receive a message equivalent to 'take me to your leader,' what should be the response? Should the extraterrestrials be patched in to a meeting of the United Nations Security Council? Or how about a G-20 summit?"

Hey, Paul, what about this idea? What about whoever wants to speak to whoever else, they can?
