The nomination was reportedly submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and he is also a chairman of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. Christian Tybring-Gjedde said on the nomination,
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
In his letter to the Nobel Committee, Christian Tybring-Gjedde wrote,
“As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game-changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,”
Christian Tybring-Gjedde has also highlighted Donald Trump’s role in starting contact between two conflicting parties. Stating that Donald Trump was able to resolve conflicts such as; the Kashmir border feud between India and Pakistan, and North and South Korea’s conflicts.
“Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter.”
Christian Tybring-Gjedde also nominated Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018. In total, 21 Americans have received the prestigious nomination, including President Barack Obama in 2009.
There were reportedly 318 candidates who submitted for the Nobel Peace Prize this year, according to the Nobel website. The Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced in October of next year.
