Intelligence sharing was involved in the operation, he added.

However, he said that it was an embarrassment for the whole world that Osama could not be captured earlier despite the latest technology.

Osama was found in a remote hilly area of Abbottabad and his body was in Afghanistan, he added.

The Premier said that Pakistan has intelligence sharing agreement with United States and other countries.

“We have good relations and multi-dimensional cooperation with the US in fields of health, education, defence and culture”, he said.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be in Pakistan later this month and President Zardari is also due in US in coming weeks, said the Prime Minister.

He said further ties of Pakistan and US are not hostage to a single incident and they have to move forward in their bilateral relations.
