ICANN Cancels Jordan Meeting Due to Middle East Turmoil

Following reports by various sources yesterday, ICANN today has officially announced that it will not hold its Jun 20-24 Public Meeting in Amman, Jordan. ICANN’s Board of Directors made the decision in light of recent developments in the Middle East. “The Board reluctantly made its decision after closely monitoring the rapidly changing developments affecting the Middle East. The decision reflects the Board’s view that regional developments could have a negative impact on attendance at the meeting,” says ICANN’s via a blog post today.

ICANN has not yet announced a replacement location for the upcoming meeting in June.
