Previously, some western sources attempted to hasten Pres. Rouhani's schedule and have suggested that the nuclear enrichment negotiations should be held in August..

Ayatollah Rouhani, as it is habit, doesn't use to hurry up for calls from the hypocrites...

He proposed to Russia that September deadline and Putin has expressed his gratitude for that Iranian proposal.

Apparently they will try to design an agreement for a temporary steps in nuclear enrichment's issues, where Iran will wait; during that not to long period, for lifting all major sanctions and Russia will simultaneously make a delivery...and lift...sanctions.
