NATO launched on Monday (February 19th) a new project to help enhance Jordan’s capacity for crisis management, The Jordan Times reported.
The three-year project will assist the Jordanian National Centre for Security and Crisis Management in achieving full operational capability, and will enhance Jordan’s capacity in national resilience, continuity of government and crisis management, NATO said in a statement on its website.
At the project initiation signing ceremony, centre vice-chairman Brig. Gen. Adnan Al-Abbadi, and NATO deputy assistant secretary-general John Manza, stressed the importance of NATO’s co-operation with Jordan in its efforts towards institutionalizing national crisis management capabilities.
"Initiation of this project represents an important milestone for the NATO-Jordan Defence Capacity Building Package and in the strategic partnership between NATO and Jordan," the statement said.
