Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari on Tuesday denied reports that his country's security forces were involved in harboring Osama bin Laden in the safehouse in which he was killed by US forces on Sunday, the Associated Press reported.

Zardari said that although Pakistani forces were not directly involved in the raid that killed bin Laden, his country's "decade of cooperation" with the US helped lead to his assassination.

The close proximity of the compound where bin Laden was hiding to a Pakistani military academy in the town of Abbottabad raised suspicions as to Pakistan's knowledge of the al-Qaida leader's whereabouts.

"Such baseless speculation may make exciting cable news, but it doesn't reflect fact," Zardari stated in a Washington Post op-ed article.
