It was Mr Thawil's first statement on how he will lead the security agency since the caretaker cabinet on March 25 revoked a Sept 7, 2011 Prime Minister's Office order which transferred him from the position of NSC secretary-general to the post of adviser to the prime minister. The decision followed a court order.
