Hello dprk007,

The Iraqi-American Chamber of Comerce and Industry seams to be the
most up to date website listing foreign embassies in Iraq:
lists: Australia, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India,
Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Romania, Spain, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, United
Aram Emirates, and Vietnam.

It is also possible that a country not accredited to Iraq may be
represented to some extent by one of the other embassies in Baghdad.
The following list, from the website above, may be a good indication
of this.
iraqi embassies and consulates abroad: [ mostly consulates]
Arab Republic of Egypt, Arab Republic of Syria, Czech Republic,
Federation of Malaysia, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Hellenic Republic
of Greece, Islamic Republic of Iran, Italian Republic, Kingdom of
Bahrain, Kingdom of Belgium, Kingdom of Morrocco, Kingdom of Spain,
Kingdom of Sweden, Kingdom of the Netherlands, Lebanese Republic,
People's Republic of China,Republic of Austria, Republic of Bulgaria,
Republic of India, Republic of Poland, Republic of Sudan, Republic of
Tunisia, Republic of Turkey, Republic of Yemen, Romania, Russian
Federation, State of Qatar, Swiss Conferedation, United Arab Emirates,
United States of America.


In Google News (1630hrs GMT 29Jun05): Iran, the Philippines and
Slovakia already have an embassy, and the Swiss are represented:

And, as indicated in other articles, more countries are upgrading,
opening or re-opening their embassies:

And, with Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari on diplomatic trips,
even more embassies or diplomatic missions may open soon.

dear fairesavoir
Many thanks for your information. You have listed more countries than
I thought would have diplomatic relations with Post Saddam Iraq.

What I am really curious about is how many of these countries actually
have diplomatic staff IN IRAQ. For example you mention Canada as
recently appointing an ambassador to Iraq. this ambassador will
however operate out of
Jordan and somer countries will have their interests represented by
other countries.
PS fairesavoir I know you are not a researcher and therefore do not get paid to
                do this. I would be delighted to receive  the information I 
                have requested but I much appreciate what done already for 
                Perhaps a researcher may want to bite this one.
