Afghan President Hamid Karzai left on Thursday for neighbouring Iran to attend a regional conference, his office said.

Karzai will deliver a speech to the meeting, the fourth to be held between the tripartite group of Afghanistan, Iran and Tajikistan, which share a language and Persian culture.

The Western-backed Karzai will hold talks with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, aiming to building stronger ties between the countries, Karzai's office said in a statement.
