FRP’s Christian Tybring-Gjedde(Progress Party) believes that Donald Trump must receive the Peace Prize for decisive contribution to the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
Tybring-Gjedde has now formally nominated the controversial president of the United States for the peace prize next year for his contribution to putting in place the peace agreement between Israel and the Emirates, the Norwegian parliamentary representative confirms to Fox News.
– “He has done more to create peace between nations than most other peace prize winners,” says Tybring-Gjedde in an interview with the American news channel.
He emphasizes in the nomination letter to the Nobel Committee that the Trump administration has played a key role in establishing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and writes that the peace agreement will probably have positive ripple effects throughout the Middle East.
– “Since it is expected that other countries in the Middle East will follow in the footsteps of the Emirates, this agreement could be a turning point that makes the Middle East a region for cooperation and progress,” writes Tybring-Gjedde.
This is the second time Christian Tybring-Gjedde has nominated Donald Trump for the Peace Prize. Together with party colleague and parliamentary representative Per-Willy Amundsen, he asked in 2018 that the American president receive the award for his approach to North Korea and the talks he then had with the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un.
This time too, he highlights the renewed contact with North Korea, as well as Trump’s role in facilitating contact between the parties in other, long-running conflicts. Moreover, Trump has failed to do so with any other US president since Jimmy Carter has managed – not to start a war or drag the United States into an international armed conflict – he points out.
– “Trump has broken a 39-year-old series of American presidents… the last president who managed to avoid doing so, was peace prize winner Jimmy Carter,” he points out.
