UK`s new security adviser to step down

London: Britain`s government says the
country`s national security adviser has confirmed he`s
stepping down, less than three months after taking up the
newly created role.

Peter Ricketts, previously the country`s top
diplomat, was appointed by Prime Minister David Cameron`s new
government to lead the government`s security work and set up a
new national security council.

Cameron clashed last week with key allies in
Pakistan over terrorism, after he questioned Islamabad`s
commitment to tackling terror groups inside its borders.

Britain`s government said the departure of Ricketts
was unconnected, and insisted had always intended to serve
only as an interim adviser.

Cameron`s office says Ricketts would leave his post
in 2011.
