Internal Security Force (Lekhwiya) and the General Directorate of the French National Gendarmerie signed a partnership and co-operation agreement in the field of security training, under which the French National Gendarmerie Officers School will train a number of officers of the Lekhwiya Force.
The agreement was signed by Deputy Commander of the Lekhwiya Force Brig Gen Abdulaziz bin Faisal bin Mohamed al-Thani, and by Director General of the French National Gendarmerie General Richard Lizurey.
The agreement aims at enhancing co-operation between the two sides in security fields, especially training, operational support and technical capacity development.
Deputy Commander of the Lekhwiya Force Brig Gen Abdulaziz bin Faisal bin Mohamed al-Thani said that the agreement signed with the French gendarmerie comes within the framework of the distinguished partnership between the two sides, which started in 2005, and resulted in a number of projects and joint agreements and exchange of experiences.
He added that there is a common belief between the two sides that co-operation between them should take a broader dimension in the field of institutional and specialised training, supported by the distinguished relations between Qatar and France.
The Deputy Commander of the Lekhwiya Force said that the Milipol Qatar exhibition is a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and learn about the latest developments in the internal security and civil defence systems, especially as it is one of the most important specialised exhibitions in the region.
