Tokyo: US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is congratulating Libya for holding is first nationwide vote in decades. She says the US stands ready to help the North African nation become a free and peaceful democracy.

Speaking today in Japan, Clinton called the Libyan vote a "historic milestone."

She says that "after more than four decades of authoritarian rule, men and women from every corner of Libya are determining their own future"
She says it`s the "will of the people, not the whim of the dictator."

Clinton acknowledges there is hard work ahead for Libyans to unify their country and ensure it becomes a peaceful, democratic state. The US and its NATO allies helped Libyans oust dictator Muammar Gaddafi last year, and Clinton pledged continued American support to the country.
