Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize after helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
Right-wing Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde put the US president forward for a nomination, he revealed on Wednesday.
He told Fox News that it relates to the “historic peace agreement” between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
He 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.”
The politician also said Mr Trump played a “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, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea.”
