NEW YORK - Republican US presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty accused US President Barack Obama on Tuesday of a timid and incoherent response to the "Arab Spring" uprisings against autocratic rulers across the Middle East and North Africa.

"From Morocco to the Arabian Gulf, the escape from the dead hand of oppression is now a real possibility. Now is not the time to retreat from freedom's rise," Pawlenty said in what was billed as a major foreign policy address.

The former Minnesota governor, seeking to gain ground in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, said Obama had failed to carry out an "effective and coherent strategy" in response to the Arab Spring uprisings.
