Washington - US President Barack Obama gave his first public reaction on Wednesday to the the fall of CIA chief David Petraeus, saying he was aware of no breach of national security during the affair.

"I have no evidence at this point from what I have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had negative impact on our national security," Obama told a news conference.

Petraeus resigned as head of the CIA on Friday after admitting an extramarital affair with his biographer.
