US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the new administration needs to undo all the damage Bush has done to restore the US image worldwide.

Clinton told reporters on Tuesday at the State Department that US President Barack Obama is committed to engaging in diplomacy with the international community rather than pursuing unilateral initiatives passed off as preemptive measures, AFP reported.

Commenting on the change of government in Washington, Clinton said, "There is a great exhalation of breath going on around the world as people express their appreciation for the new direction that is being set and the team that is being put together by the president."

Clinton also stated that under Obama the United States will take a new course on foreign policy and refrain from militarism and the Bush administration's scorn for international bodies when it comes to negotiations.

"We have a lot of damage to repair," Clinton said, adding, "That's not rhetoric. That is our commitment. That's how we are proceeding." [watch video]
