Australia has assured Russia the government here does everything it can to protect foreign diplomats, after the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey.

"We take great care to ensure that diplomats in Australia are the subject of protection," Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told ABC radio on Wednesday.

Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov was shot dead by an off-duty policeman at an art gallery opening in the Turkish capital Ankara.
