KATHMANDU — Nepal has been positioned as the second peaceful country among seven south Asian nations by Global Peace Index.

According to the report by Vision for Humanity, Bhutan named as most peaceful country in South Asia. Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan have been ranked the third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh.

Overall, the individual overall scores of Afghanistan, Nepal and India deteriorated, while for Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Pakistan, scores improved modestly.

“The overall global level of peace continues to deteriorate while the gap between the most and least peaceful countries continued to widen,” said the report.

“In 2016, Nepal’s internal peace score is two percent better than it was in 2008 and its Positive Peace score was seven percent better in 2015 than in 2005,” the report reads.

The report raises its concern that the world was becoming less peaceful.

“The last decade has seen a historic decline in world peace. This interrupts the long-term improvements in peace since World War II. The historic ten-year deterioration in peace has largely been driven by the intensifying conflicts in Middle East and Africa,” the report said.
