Washington - US Secretary of State John Kerry praised his predecessor Hillary Clinton on Sunday for the "terrific job" she did in repairing global ties while she was America's top diplomat.

She "did a terrific job of rebuilding alliances that had been shredded over the course of the prior years," Kerry told ABC's This Week as Clinton was expected to announce later on Sunday that she would run for the Democratic nomination in the 2016 White House race.

But Kerry stressed that as the nation's top diplomat he was out of politics, and it was not for him to endorse any candidates.

Calling Clinton "a good friend," Kerry told NBC's Meet the Press that "she's highly qualified, and I'm confident we'll wage no matter what, with or without a primary, a formidable campaign."

He also reiterated that the state department was currently sifting through hundreds of emails turned over by Clinton which she had sent during her four years as secretary of state.

"We will release all the emails that [are] appropriate, based on classification," Kerry told CBS's Face The Nation adding that it was important to ensure no classified information was "inadvertently" released.
