US President Donald Trump gets nominated for the Noble Peace Prize 2021 following the Israel-UAE accord and resolving worldwide conflicts.
The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has been nominated for the 2021 Noble Peace Prize to resolve conflicts happening worldwide and primarily for the peace agreement between Israel and United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Nomination by Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde
As reported by the New York Post, President Donald Trump has been nominated by right-wing Norwegian politician and Chairman to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Christian Tybring-Gjedde.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde stated that Donald Trump had achieved ‘new dynamics in protracted conflicts,’ including North and South Korea and Kashmir in India.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees. As 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,” Tybring-Gjedde, told Fox News.
He also stated that Trump had played an essential role in establishing relations between the two nations and therefore is worthy of the nomination. Donald Trump has also played his part in withdrawing a large number of troops from the Middle East.
The politician has also stated that he is not a big supporter of Trump, but other nominees have won the prize by doing much less.
Israel – UAE Peace Agreement that led to the nomination
The President had announced the deal last month, acknowledging that it will create peaceful conditions between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
On Tuesday, a White House official announced that the US President Donald Trump would hold a signing ceremony on September 15 for a groundbreaking Middle East agreement normalizing relations between Israel and the UAE.
This deal was made possible by Trump with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, who is also married to the US president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump. With this agreement, UAE is the third Arab country to have diplomatic ties with Israel after Jordan and Egypt. This deal will also facilitate trade ties between the two nations.
This is not the first time that Donald Trump has been nominated for the Noble Peace Prize. He was also selected earlier in 2018 for the Singapore Summit with Kim Jong-un, the North Korean President. However, Trump did not win it then.
