After President Donald Trump helped broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), he has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.


This nomination was submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, praising Trump for his efforts toward resolving worldwide conflicts.


Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament and the chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told media, "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,"

Tybring-Gjedde nominated Trump and said his administration had played a key role in establishing relations between Israel and the UAE. "As it is expected, other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the UAE's footsteps, this agreement could be a game-changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity."

Further adding the president's "key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea and dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea."

The Nobel Peace Prize recipient is determined by a five-person Nobel Committee, appointed by the Norwegian Parliament. The winner of the Peace Prize for 2021 will be announced after October of next year.
