DUSHANBE: Iran's President Mohammad Khatami will visit Tajikistan on Sept. 11 for three days of talks aimed at putting the finishing touches on agreements to provide energy for the impoverished former Soviet republic.
The Iranian Embassy in the Central Asian republic said Khatami would meet Tajik President Emomali Rakhmonov during his stay and discuss regional security issues with other officials.
Iran and Tajikistan have close ties and the two are on the verge of sealing an agreement for a $400-million Iranian grant to help complete the building of a Tajik energy plant whose construction began 15 years ago in the Soviet era.
Khatami last visited Tajikistan in 2002."
