WASHINGTON - Iran's alleged ties to a plot to kill the Saudi ambassador in Washington will isolate Tehran, strengthen Gulf security alliances and spur stricter enforcement of sanctions against Iranian interests, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday.

Clinton said the US announcement that it had foiled the plot demonstrated that Tehran was a "bad guy" and a threat to the world at large.

"What everybody is learning is that nobody is safe from the Iranians. They have their own logic, their own way of thinking about the world and their place in it and they're vying with everybody for influence," Clinton told Reuters in an interview.

"This case will, I think, reinforce the well-grounded suspicions of many countries about what they're up to."
