Norwegian parliamentarian Tybring-Gjedde has nominated Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize this year. Reports say that the decision came following the brokering of a deal by the US President between the UAE and Israel. Tybring believes that this particular deal is sought to bring peace between the two nations.
The UAE and Israel entered into a breakthrough deal on 13th August, aimed to normalise relations between the two countries. Under this peace treaty, Israel will suspend sovereignty over the areas prescribed in the US protocol. Trump tweeted that this historic deal is a testimony to the vision and vibrant diplomacy of the three nations, and the striving efforts of Israel and UAE to build a path that would unfold the potential in the Middle-east. The deal can potentially enhance prosperity and cooperation in the region.
Previously, Tybring-Gjedde named Donald Trump for this honour for his efforts in stabilising relations with North Korean leader Kim-Jong through diplomatic channels.
Tybring-Gjedde said in media that though Trump’s home policies might be lacking sense and legitimacy, his international efforts overshadow them for him being considered for the Noble Peace Prize.
The winner of the peace prize is to be announced in Oslo on 9th October.
