I will do my best as national security adviser: Menon
New Delhi: Former foreign secretary Shivshankar Menon, who was named the new national security adviser (NSA) to succeed MK Narayanan and will be joining work Saturday, says it is "a great responsibility".
"It is a great responsibility and I will do my best," Menon said after the Appointments Committee of the cabinet Thursday cleared his name for the post.
He refused to answer questions on what subjects he would be dealing with in his new role.
Menon, 60, who has served as ambassador to China, Pakistan, Israel and Sri Lanka, will be equivalent to a minister of state in rank.
