Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated US President Donald Trump for Nobel Peace Prize 2021

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

Christian Tybring-Gjedde, chairman of Norwegian delegation, nominated the US president. Tybring-Gjedde is a four-term member of Norwegian Parliament and also serves as the chair of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

“I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Christian Tybring-Gjedde was quoted as saying by Fox News.

“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,” he wrote in his nomination letter for Trump.

President Trump on August 13 announced that the United Arab Emirates and Israel have agreed to establish complete diplomatic ties as part of a deal to halt the Israeli annexation of occupied land sought by the Palestinians for their future state, reported the Daily Mail.

The peace treaty between the two countries made UAE the first Gulf Arab state and third Arab nation after Egypt and Jordan to have active diplomatic ties in Israel.
