It emerges from interviews with both Iranian and American officials that after 11 September, 2001, Tehran collaborated so closely with the US in order to topple the Taleban and remove al-Qaeda from Afghanistan, that they even provided intelligence information to pinpoint military targets for bombing.
Over Iraq too, Iran's reformist President Mohammad Khatami offered to collaborate on ousting Saddam Hussein, arguing that the Iraqi leader was also Iran's enemy.
But relations deteriorated after former US President George W Bush accused Iran of being part of an "Axis of Evil".
The President is elected for a four-year term by the direct vote of the people and may not serve for more than two consecutive terms. The election on 3 August 2005 resulted in a victory for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and he will be up for reelection on 12 June 2009.
