Panetta today said the daring operation to kill Osama bin Laden at his Abbottabad safe house in Pakistan was very risky as the al- Qaeda chief`s presence there was not 100 per cent confirmed.
Panetta commended Al-Sisi for his efforts to address shared security objectives, including Sinai and border security.
Panetta said after being in public life for five decades he would return to private life and to his home in California.
The Pakistan military has said it would not accept any pressure to abandon the stance taken in negotiations with the United States, according to a report.
