WASHINGTON (AP) -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says Iran shouldn't misread the decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq and she notes that the U.S. will continue to have a strong presence in the region.
President Barack Obama and Iraqi leaders have decided that American troops should leave Iraq by year's end, bringing to a close the war that began in 2003.
Clinton tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that no one, including Iran, should miscalculate America's resolve and commitment to helping support the Iraqi democracy.
She says that if Iran were to look at the region, it would see military bases and support and training assets outside of Iraq, as well as a NATO ally in Turkey.
