TEHRAN, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Minister Alexander Novak said on Wednesday that Russia is not considering a ban on diesel exports, and that a ban on gasoline exports may be lifted at any moment if the market becomes saturated.

During a visit to Iran, Novak told journalists the gasoline ban is a preventative measure ahead of anticipated seasonal growth in fuel demand. (Reporting by Olesya Astakhova, Writing by Felix Light, Editing by Chris Reese)
