U.S. State Secretary Hillary Clinton on Wednesday met with Peruvian President-elect Ollanta Humala in Washington, vowing to enhance relations with the South American country.

"We are looking forward to working with the president-elect when he assumes office in just a short time," Clinton told reporters in the joint press conference before her meeting with Humala.

"He has a very big agenda in front of him, and the United States stands ready to be his partner," she said, adding that she looked forward to discussing many matters with Humala.

Humala said he looked forward to holding an "open and transparent" discussion with the U.S.

"I want to say that it is my intention to strengthen the relationship between our countries, a relationship which is good," he said. "But I hope that during my administration, it will become even better."

Leftist Humala claimed victory in the presidential runoff on June 5 over right-wing presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori.
