For nearly five months, Ouattara was imprisoned inside an aging hotel, his exits blocked by the strongman's troops.
Pro-Ouattara neighbourhoods were shelled, and hundreds of his supporters were killed.
At a joint news conference in the capital Abidjan, Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara said a national commission of inquiry was doing "important work".
But human rights groups say Ouattara's administration has not done enough to prosecute members of its armed forces who are linked to massacres.
Clinton also praised the economic recovery in Ivory Coast on Tuesday.
"There are investment opportunities, people looking for work, who are ready to go to work, there are many ways that American businesses can invest with, trade with and create opportunities right here, " she told reporters.

Clinton is wrapping up a four-country tour of West Africa, which included attending the inauguration of Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Monday.
In addition to Ivory Coast, Clinton will also visit Togo and Cape Verde.
