1. (C) We delivered ref A talking points and text of the 
draft UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) on Iraq December 
14 to Third Territorial Department Middle East Division 
Acting Director Mykola Leshchenko, Iraq Desk Officer Mykola 
Radchenko, and UN and Other International Organizations UN 
desk officer Oleh Dubovy.  We noted that we were following up 
our delivery of the U.S.-Iraq Statement of Principles (ref B) 
in order to keep Ukraine informed, as a nation participating 
in the Multi-National Force - Iraq (MNF-I), regarding the 
process that would eventually lead to a legal framework for 
coalition military activities in Iraq after the Chapter VII 
mandate expires in December 2008. 
 
2. (C) Leshchenko was grateful to receive the text of the 
draft resolution, which he noted he had not yet received. 
Radchenko said he would welcome further consultations 
regarding the agreements to be developed to authorize 
third-countries to participate in military operations in 
Iraq.  Leshchenko hypothesized that the process might include 
the negotiation of a Mutual Defense Agreement like the ones 
that the U.S. had already negotiated with certain Gulf States.
