His Majesty King Abdullah II Wednesday received Director of International Group for Crises Treatment (IGCT) Garret Evans, who handed His Majesty the group's report on Maan city events and incentives.

The King expressed regards to the group's members on the efforts they carried out to consider the reasons of the sorrowful events that took place in the city more than once.

His Majesty gave instructions to send the report to the government for consideration.

His Majesty reviewed Maan's role in the establishment of the Jordanian state and further enhancing its stability and security.

The climate of democracy and political pluralism in Jordan give each citizen opportunities of free expression of opinion rather than resort to violence, His Majesty said. IGCT, established in 1995 by prominent political international figures, aims at, neutral and unbiased studying of reasons of problems that take place in some regions of the world.

The Brussels based group acts to help governments and international organizations, as well as the international community to prevent or contain conflicts.
