Washington - The United States is "encouraged" by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's promise on Tuesday that two jailed American hikers will be freed in the next couple of days, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.

"We have followed this very closely and we are encouraged by what the Iranian government has said today," she said.

"We obviously hope that we will see a positive outcome from what appears to be a decision by the government."
