A member of the Norweigan Parliament has nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination comes for the President’s work brokering the historic peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
According to The New York Post:
President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, according to a report.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and chairman of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, submitted the nomination, Fox News reported.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News.
In his letter to the Nobel Committee, Tybring-Gjedde wrote that the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between the two nations.
Fox News has reported that the agreement will allow other Middle East nations to follow in the UAE’s footsteps.
Tybring-Gjedde also lauded the President for withdrawing large amounts of troops from the Middle East.
The agreement makes UAE the third nation to have diplomatic relations with Israel after Egypt and Jordan.
