DOHA, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Qatar ranks among the world's lowest in terms of crime rates, and is considered as the best place for security and safety, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported Tuesday.
Qatar's Ministry of Development Planning and Statistics showed Qatar is a very safe country, compared with other parts of the world, which reflects Qatar's global security status.
Qatar has become an outstanding centre in the world security indicators, and has the seventh-lowest crime rate globally according to the latest annual Global Crime Index by Numbeo.
During 2016 and 2017, Qatar ranked first in the Gulf and Arab countries in the World Peace Index, based on the high level of security and security prevailing in the country, as well as the low crime rates.
Qatar is suffering from an ongoing blockade imposed on it by its gulf neighbors since June 5, accusing it of funding terrorism, but Doha denied all the allegations.
