Classified By: A/POL Colin Cleary.  Reasons:  1.4(B/D). 
 
(C)  Responding to reftel B request by DFM Saltanov for 
information regarding the U.S. response to the January 10 
attack on the Russian Embassy in Baghdad, we passed on ref A 
information, noting that it had been shared in Baghdad on 
January 17.  Ivan Molotkov, Chief of the MFA Iraq Section, 
thanked us for the information.  He reiterated DFM Saltanov's 
view that Multinational Forces had a responsibility under the 
Vienna Convention to protect diplomatic premises in Iraq.  He 
noted that the Iraqi government was investigating the attack, 
but the Russians had no information on the identity of the 
assailants nor had any group yet claimed responsibility.
