Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, arrived in Tehran on Monday ahead of the summit of Caspian Sea littoral (coastal) states, scheduled for Tuesday.
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad greeted Nazarbayev, who was welcomed with an official guard of honour ceremony.
Nazarbayev is one of five leaders set to visit Tehran for the summit, which will unite leaders from countries bordering the oil and natural gas rich Caspian Sea; Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan.
Questions were raised on Monday as to whether Russian President Vladimir Putin would attend the summit, following reports of a possible assassination attempt while in Iran.
Putin's presence is not expected to produce any breakthrough in talks between the five nations on dividing the resources of the inland sea, which is believed to contain the world's third-largest energy reserves.
The legal status of the Caspian has been in limbo since the 1991 Soviet collapse, leading to tension and conflicting claims to oil deposits.
Iran, which shared the Caspian's resources equally with the Soviet Union, insists that each coastal nation receive an equal portion of the seabed.
Russia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan want the division based on the length of each nation's shoreline, which would give Iran a smaller share.
The first summit of Caspian Sea states was held in Ashkhabad, capital of Turkmenistan in 2002.
The Caspian Sea, located in northern Iran, is the world's largest body of water surrounded by land which does not have any outlet to other seas.
It is bordered on the west by Azerbaijan and Russia, on the northeast and east by Kazakhstan, on the east by Turkmenistan, and on the south by Iran.
Fish stocks in the Caspian Sea provide a major income source for many locals and it also supplies the domestic needs of fishery products as well as export.
The high-quality caviar of the Caspian Sea is world famous.
Thousands of Iranians also visit the Caspian Sea every year for their holidays.
