In a recent interview during his visitto the US, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan admitted that the country knewabout the presence of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden on its soil.

"It was ISI that gave the information which led to thelocation of Osama bin Laden. If you ask CIA, it was ISI which gave the initiallocation through the phone connection," the Pakistan PM said. Pakistan's spy agency ISI provided information to theCIA, which helped the US track down Osama, Khan claimed.

It may be mentioned here that Pakistan had maintained that it had no knowledge about the presence of the terrorist on its soil. Osama was eliminated in Abbottabad, situated close to Islamabad, in a secret operation conducted by the US Navy SEALs way back on May 2, 2011.
