Iranian president to visit to France sometime after Iranian new year

TEHRAN, Jan 13 (AFP) - Iranian President Mohammad Khatami will pay a ground-breaking visit to France sometime after the Iranian new year in March, although the date has not yet been set, the foreign ministry said Wednesday.

The ministry, quoted by the official Iranian news agency, said the visit is "on the agenda" but will not take place before the Iranian new year which will start March 21.

"Necessary coordination will have to be made with due regard for the president's work program," it said.

Iran's embassy in Paris said in November that the visit would take place in February but did not provide further details. French Foreign Minister Hubert Vedrine, who went to Iran in August, gave Khatami an invitation from French President Jacques Chirac to visit Paris.

Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharazi will travel to france at an unspecified date to pave the way for Khatami's visit, the first by an Iranian head of state to a European Union country since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
