KABUL - US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Thursday it was difficult to secure Afghanistan so long as there were safe havens in Pakistan, adding Washington was reaching the limits of its patience.

"It is difficult to achieve peace in Afghanistan as long as there is safe haven for terrorists in Pakistan," Panetta, who arrived in Kabul a day after a deadly insurgent bombing, told reporters. "We have made this very clear and do this again: we are reaching the limits of our patience."
