New Delhi, Jan 29: Dr. S. Jaishankar today said after assuming charge as Foreign Secretary of India that he has a big responsibility and Government of India’s priorities are his priorities.
Talking to media-persons after assuming charge, Dr. Jaishankar said I don’t think this is the time to get into to those kinds of questions when asked: “You’ve just taken over as Foreign Secretary of India. First of all the appointment, does it come as a surprise because of the suddenness of it?
About the three biggest challenges over the next two years and his priorities, the new Foreign Secretary said: “My priorities are the government’s priorities….This is a big responsibility. I would say that I am very honoured that I have been assigned this responsibility.”
