The State of Qatar and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) have signed the Administrative Arrangements for Protection of Classified Information between the State of Qatar and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) at Nato’s Headquarters in Brussels.

‏In the presence of Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the Kingdom of Belgium, Abdulrahman bin Mohammed Al Khulaifi, the Qatari Defence Attaché Brigadier General Abdul Hadi bin Mubarak Tarihib Al Hajri and representatives of the armed forces and state ministries; the Arrangements were signed by Brigadier General Abdulaziz Saleh AlSulaiti, Head of the International Military Cooperation Authority on behalf of the State of Qatar, and Donald Gonneville, Director of Nato Office of Security and Assistant Deputy Secretary General for Security Affairs on behalf of Nato. 

The Administrative Arrangements for the Protection of Classified Information is the last step to activate and implement the Agreement on Information Security and the Exchange of Classified Information that was signed in Brussels in 2018, which provides a framework for the protection of information exchanged between Nato and its partners, as defined by the 29 Nations of the Nato Council.  

Most Nato partner nations have signed bilateral security agreements and this agreement enables the activation of all the areas of cooperation defined in  the Individual Partnership and Cooperation Program that was signed between the State of Qatar and Nato in 2017, which is the main framework for laying the foundations of cooperation for countries seeking partnership with the Alliance through global initiatives such as the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative that was  signed by the State of Qatar in 2004.
