The White House said on Wednesday that it is pleased that Iran released 10 American sailors it had detained, but continues to have concerns about Tehran's sponsorship of terrorism and threats to Israel, Reuters reports.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest told Reuters he was not aware of any discussions between Washington and Tehran about an American apology for the incident and noted one "certainly" had not been given.
Earnest explained that President Barack Obama had not mentioned the incident during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night so as not to elevate the issue and jeopardize the sailors' release.
Earlier on Wednesday, Iran released the 10 navy sailors it detained a day earlier after they accidentally strayed into Iranian waters.

Come on... what’d you expect? the truth?
Does Josh Earnest leave an actual slime trail wherever he goes? Or does it just seem like he should...?
At least the previous mouthpieces for this administration had the decency to look awkward and foolish when they knew they were telling lies.
Why would I believe someone named Josh?
After last night what’s one more lie from Ubama?
With those pregnant denials?
Surely they wouldn’t try to cover something up now, would they?
You actually sat through the whole State of the Onion? You got elephant suevos.
I thought he seemed pretty earnest in his comments.
But he’s earnest.
Guess what, White Hut - we know you are lying. I don’t care what you are saying, I just need to watch your face while you say it.
Na , Obama only paid $150 Billion to get them back
Who you going to believe, the White Hut or your lyin’ eyes?
With that statement, I can conclude not only that there was an apology, but that it was made on bended knee.
Do these people ever tell the truth. I know all officials lie , but this administration takes it to new levels.
I didn’t watch a single minute of it.
This will be “walked back,” of course, when the Iranians tell their side of the story.
And the MSM will bark like trained seals and slap their flippers together.
I heard the apology. What the hell is going on. Was this a delivery of our technology required by that horrible deal to give nukes to IRAN??
Understandable. The latest beheading videos are less gruesome than an Obama long-winded speech.
