CIA director Leon Panetta traveled to Israel last week, the American political Web site Politico.com reported Saturday.

According to the report, Panetta met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, with Defense Minister Ehud Barak and with Mossad chief Meir Dagan.

The three, according to an unnamed Israeli official quoted by the Website, discussed Iran as well as bilateral relations.

Panetta also reportedly traveled to Cairo and met with intelligence chief Omar Suleiman and other officials during the same tour.

The Jerusalem Post could not verify the report.
