Iran's president on Sunday said the crisis in Lebanon has forced Tehran to re-evaluate a Western nuclear incentives package, but his country still plans to respond to the offer next month. "Events in Lebanon affected our evaluations about ... [the] package of incentives. We should review it carefully. I have asked my colleagues to review it more carefully," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said during a news conference. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi referred to the ongoing Israeli-Hizbullah war and said that any Security Council action against Iran "will confront the region with more tension," he said.
