He was defeated by Rouhani in the 2013 election, and was banned from running again in the one just past.
What's more, Trump's outreach to traditional U.S. allies and his references to crisis like the Syrian War underscore the fact that his Iran policy is not only concerned with the Iranian regime itself but also with the impact that it continues to have on other enemies and potential enemies of the United States.
Jen Psaki, who served as White House communications director for President Barack Obama, said every White House has to contend with the risks of letting events at home step on a trip's message. An insider from within the upper echelons of power, he has worked with the supreme leader Khamenei for decades.
"The countries of the region need more cooperation and consultations to resolve the crisis in the region and we are ready to cooperate in this field", Mr Rouhani told Sheikh Tamim, IRNA added.
For now that is unlikely to change, the official says. "They should be picked by the people". "I hope I am wrong".
By now, it should be clear that the vetting processes and unelected institutions within Iran's government make Iran undemocratic. Ahmadinejad has become the ultimate cautionary tale, the incentive to vote, his name an enabling mantra repeated by those who would otherwise never participate in an election.
The turnout was unprecedented in the history of the Islamic Revolution. Another Al Jazeera report quoted Rouhani as explicitly stating that missile tests would continue because "the Iranian nation has made a decision to be powerful". "We expect Iran to behave responsibly. not to support terror", said his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel.

Rebel Wilson gets emotional as she testifies in defamation trial
Tweets sent by Ms Wilson outing another journalist at Bauer Media supposedly contacting her grandmother were also read in court. It was not a concern, he said, if they had previously seen one of Ms Wilson's films, Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids among them.
"He should let them capitalize on what he and his camp have achieved".
From an global relations perspective, Rouhani's domestic and foreign policy approaches proceed from such important theoretical arguments such as worldwide regime theory and realism.
Guess what? That is NOT leadership; it is pandering to one of the world's most repressive regimes - the Sauds, who are also the true source of most terrorism in that permanently very troubled region. Their victories are a repudiation of hard-line rule by conservatives. Rouhani and his foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, are players in the most vital of these struggles-whether Iran grinds on as a bastion of revolutionary zeal or joins the community of nations.
Soon after his appointment, top IRGC commanders including Qods Force chief Qassem Soleimani met with Raisi. His success at the polls likely carried reformist candidates to victory in other municipal elections as well. He also controls Astan-e-Quds Razavi, one of the wealthiest foundations, and is seen a possible successor to the present Supreme Leader who is 77 and in poor health. Some argue that letting that happen was a deliberate strategy by Khamenei, and note that power centers in Iran that oppose Rouhani are far from monolithic.
Several other American-Jewish and Israel advocacy organizations, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, are supporting the bill. "Mr. Rouhani's government, in its first day back in office has returned the shadows of war over our nation". However, these gatherings are usually less political and emotional as the crowd is mostly there to greet the president and listen to his speech. "The question is if Rouhani can use this opportunity or not".
Rouhani will want to demonstrate the opposite, buoyed by his new mandate.
He expressed the hope that diplomatic efforts would bear results and would pave the way for the Syrian people to decide on the future of their country.
Moderate? I don't think so. "The people, the voters, forced themselves onto the structure of the 'deep state, ' of the security apparatus". Significantly, however, hardliners are also eager to ensure that they are not blamed for those failures.
