The strategic importance of relationships between Iran and Egypt, as two main powers in the Middle East region, and its specific position have always been considered more than any other past events specially due to the structural changes in international system and occurrence of new events data as Islamic Awakening. This research intends to answer this question: despite of vicissitudes political fluctuations between Iran and Egypt, why diplomatic relations are not officially being established between the two countries? In seeking for answer to this main question, the research hypothesis has been propounded as follows: Interactional nature of  dominant relations over Iran and Egypt, which shows lack of structural model in relationships between the two countries, prevents the establishment of official diplomatic relations. From the strategic perspective, temporary convergences in the realm of foreign policies, priority of  transient and short-term conditions in regional and international levels in foreign decision-makings and absence of structure- creating view towards regional system in forms like coalition and alliance in orientations of both sides' foreign policy are being considered as main characteristics of interactional nature of the mentioned bilateral relations. In order to verify the hypothesis, the author has used theoretical framework of James Rosenau's linkage-politics and has specially analyzed events data in the filed of Iran and Egypt relations in 1990s and first decade of 21century.
