“Decisions are being taken day by day and month by month. Far from everything can be seen; not everything is lying on the surface. But those to whom we send our replies will certainly sense and take note of them,” Ryabkov stressed.

Iran, P5+1 understand November should be new deadline for reaching final agreement, Ryabkov said.
Considerable progress reached at Iran-P5+1 talks, he added.
