France and Monaco have signed an accord on the sharing and protection of classified information.

On Thursday, July 13, the two sides signed a general agreement in the presence of Serge Telle, Minister of State of the Principality, and Louis Gautier, Secretary General of France’s Defence and National Security Organisation, for the exchange and reciprocal protection of classified information.

This accord has been facilitated by the new Monaco law on the preservation of national security of July 6, 2016, which establishes the rules for the creation and protection of classified data and its exchange with foreign partners.

The negotiators on each side established a text that mutually recognises classification levels and sets out the framework for trading classified information.

The Monaco government said that the arrangement, concluded between very close partners, will make it possible to reinforce cooperation in sensitive areas, particularly in the fight against terrorism and computer security. France is the first partner of the Principality to sign such a general security agreement.
