In a statement, the MoI said that the security exercise "Watan" is considered as one of the biggest events in terms of the number of participating authorities from Qatar and abroad, and its integration between security, military, organizational and service authorities and various scenarios based on all types of expected internal and external risks while hosting World Cup. Experts and specialists of different fields participating in the exercise hold the exercise after conducting studies.

The exercise "Watan" aims at enhancing the role of the concerned authorities while executing their regular missions and additional tasks during the World Cup to assess the responsiveness in emergencies and enact the mechanisms of command, control and cooperation between military and civil agencies to achieve integration of their roles while accomplishing the missions. This is in addition to enhancing close collaboration between the participating sisterly and friendly forces to ensure integration of the efforts and cooperation for achieving the best security experiences during the major sports activities and events hosted by the State of Qatar.
