The minister also met with Qatari students who are studying in France, in the presence of a number of officials of the ministry.
He reviewed the academic and social conditions of the students and urged the students to be the best ambassadors of their country, and to stick to their Qatari identity, while engaging in French society and participating in cultural events and various university activities in order to develop their personal skills and accept different opinions and views and make the best use of the study period to come back home to participate in the State’s development.
