The military section of the French Embassy is under the authority of a field officer. Appointed by the Minister of Defense, the Defense Attaché represents, under the Ambassador’s authority, the Defence minister to Qatari military authorities.
The Defense attaché is backed up by an assistant, a secretary, and as it may happens, an intern from a high reputated school. He’s also assisted by the military cooperation section, i.e. four counselors (Army, Air Force, Navy and Police force).
