Afghanistan is the least positive country in the world. That is according to a study by the American research agency Gallup. Globally, stress, sadness and worry increased in the past year.
The worst was the situation in Afghanistan, where eight in ten said they were concerned. Three quarters said they were stressed and six in ten were sad.
The Taliban government dismissed the report, saying in response that the Afghan people are “happy”.
“The report is based on incorrect information and serves as a propaganda tool,” said Taliban spokesman Bilal Karimi.
