Khatami visits Qatar on final leg of Arab tour

DOHA, May 19 (AFP) - Iranian President Mohammad Khatami flew into Qatar on Wednesday on the third and final leg of a week-long tour of Arab countries, officials said.

They said Khatami was to hold a series of talks with the emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, focusing on economic cooperation. Several accords have been prepared for signing.

The head of Iran's presidential office, Mohammad Ali Abtahi, said in a Doha newspaper interview that Khatami would hold talks here on "strategic relations," as well as a project for Qatar to supply Iran with drinking water.

The president's two-day mission to Qatar, which has good political ties with Iran, follows visits to Saudi Arabia and Syria.

"The results of the visit (to Saudi Arabia) ... will have a positive impact on the whole region," Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal predicted on Wednesday.
