U.S. President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. Trump has been nominated by Norwegian parliamentarian Christian Tibering Jade for mediating a historic peace deal between Israel and the UAE. He said Trump’s contribution to resolving world conflicts and restoring peace was huge.
The Tibering nomination also hinted at Trump’s willingness to intervene in the dispute between India and Pakistan over Kashmir. “I’m not a fan of Trump, but I believe he has done more to restore peace in the world than any other nominee for the award,” Tibring told Fox News.
Tibering, a four-time member of parliament and chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, added that the Trump administration has played a key role in forging ties between the UAE and Israel.
“The UAE-Israel agreement could be a turning point. Other countries in the Middle East will follow in the footsteps of the UAE. It will make the West Asia an area of cooperation and prosperity. “Trump has worked hard to resolve the North-South conflict,” said Tybring.
According to the official website of the Nobel Prize Committee, there are 318 nominees for the 2020 Peace Prize.
