Defence Minister Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar has said that the government of Pakistan and the armed forces played a huge part in the killing of Osama bin Laden, adding that a mobile chip was used to locate him.

He gave this statement on the first anniversary of Bin Laden's killing during an interview to the British Broadcasting Channel (BBC) Urdu news service.

According to BBC correspondent Aijaz Meher, the defence minister said that Pakistan had an agreement with the US that whenever Pakistan retrieved any material in Arabic and English, it will be given to US and if the US found any material in Urdu, it would give it to Pakistan.

"I do not know how big a leader Osama bin Laden was," said the defence minister. Time will tell how positive his contributions to the Muslim countries proved to be."

He said that materials recovered from Osama bin Laden’s residence were with the army and investigations were underway.
