Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will address the international forum on water security in Chiang Mai on Monday, an embassy official in Bangkok has confirmed.
His scheduled appearance comes as Iran gears up for elections and as world powers press the Islamic republic over its suspected nuclear programme and support for the Syrian regime.
Mr Ahmadinejad, who is constitutionally barred from seeking a third straight term in next month's polls, will join regional leaders at the Asia-Pacific Water Summit, which focuses on water security and climate change.
