We made optical observations of X-ray transient IGR J17464-3213 = H1743-322 in I-filter by using 1.5-m Russian-Turkish telescope RTT150 at Bakyrlytepe (TUBITAK National Observatory, Turkey) in the night 5/6 April 2003. Search for the source at the radio position, reported by Rupen et al. (ATEL#137,IAUC # 8105 , ATEL#138), gave only marginal detection of a weak source at the level of I~20. Coordinates of this source are R.A.=17h46m15.6s, Dec=-32o14'01.2'' (equinox 2000, position uncertainty 0.5 arcsec).
