Thank you Nick, Vince, and Allan for answering my question.

Following a suggestion from Nick, I found a solution with -twoway bar- which 
was good enough for me, albeit not what I have initially intended. 

twoway ///
  (bar hsatcc cnew, horizontal base(`min') blcolor(black) bfcolor(white)) ///
  (bar hsateu cnew, horizontal base(`min') blcolor(black) bfcolor(black)) ///
  (dot hsatagg cnew, horizontal base(`min')), ///
  legend(off) ///
  yline(29, lstyle(foreground)) ///
  ylab(1(1)28 30(1)33, valuelabel angle(horizontal) axis(1)) ///
  xtitle("") ytitle("") ///
  ysize(7) xlab(#5, grid)
exit

That is, I designed a categorical variable (cnew) to order the countries along 
the vertical axis. I left one category empty in this cnew which gives me 
space between the dot-plot part and the bar-blot part,  In this space I 
ploted a line in the foreground. 

I did not follow Vince's suggestion. The graphs has to be inserted into a Word 
document which has to be sent to a third party who is going to make a 
internet page from it. Visually alinging the plot regions seems to be not 
robust enough for this purpose.

many regards
