    SYDNEY, Australia - Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan have been named as the three least peaceful countries for 2017 by a Global Peace Index (GPI) report released by the Australian Institute for Economics & Peace.

    “The GPI recorded improvements in average global peace in 2016”, the report read. 

    “The overall score for the 2017 GPI improved slightly this year due to gains in six of the nine geographical regions represented. More countries improved their levels of peacefulness, than deteriorated: 93 compared to 68”.

    “Iraq and Afghanistan have also remained amongst the bottom five countries of the index for the past five years,” the report said.

    Iceland remains as the world’s most peaceful country, a position it maintains since 2008.
