MOSCOW - The sanctions imposed by the United States on a major Iranian port operator and the country's national airline may affect Russian companies and "raise serious questions", the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

"Such actions, based on an extra-territorial use of US law, potentially create a situation when Russian business structures cooperating with these companies could be affected", the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
