Mossad chief Meir Dagan on Sunday evening denied media reports about his departure from the organization.
Speaking at a Tel Aviv University conference, Dagan reassured various leaders and Mossad retirees, that there is "no need to worry" about the reports.
He explained that the organization's operations continue to be clandestine and only the mistakes, which happen naturally, become known to the public.
Dagan added that no other existing organization receives as much contribution from retirees as the Mossad.
The media had reported that, after serving eight years as head of the highly secretive organization, Dagan would not continue next year.
