The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAEDI) is the ministry in the government of France that handles France's foreign relations. Its headquarters are located on the Quai d'Orsay[Notes 1] in Paris, close to the National Assembly of France.

Its cabinet minister, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development (French: Ministre des Affaires étrangères et du Développement international) is responsible for the foreign relations of France. The current minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, was appointed in May 2017.

In 1547, secretaries to the King became specialized, writing correspondence to foreign governments, and negotiating peace treaties. The four French secretaries of state where foreign relations were divided by region, in 1589, became centralized with one becoming first secretary responsible for international relations.

The Ancien Régime position of Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs became Foreign Minister around 1723,[1] and was renamed "Minister of Foreign Affairs" in 1791 after the French Revolution. All ministerial positions were abolished in 1794 by the National Convention and re-established with the Directory.

For a brief period in the 1980s, the office was retitled Minister for External Relations. As of 17 May 2017, the ministry is designated the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by Jean-Yves Le Drian.

Central administration[edit]

  • General inspection of foreign affairs (IGAE)
  • The prospective office (DP)
  • The Protocole, upon which the President's protocole cell relies on
