Washington (CNN) — The State Department has refused to
provide details of which countries have offered assistance with the oil
spill off the Louisiana coast.

State Department spokesman P.J.
Crowley said Tuesday that 12 countries and international organizations
had offered to help but would not provide details.

“One more
time. Do we know who the 12 are? We do,” Crowley said at a briefing.
“Are we going to announce them publicly? We’re not.”

media reported that the country’s National Iranian Drilling Co. offered
to provide experts to advise how best to cope with the spill. But Crowley said he was “not aware” of
the United States receiving an offer from Iran.

“I can’t start
down that road. I’m not aware of one, but I’m not going to get into who
the 12 are,” Crowley said. But he offered no explanation, saying the
United States would make an announcement only if it accepted an offer
from a particular country.
