A right-wing politician in Norway has nominated US President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde said President Trump should be recognised for “his contribution to peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.”
The two countries last month agreed to normalise relations, with the deal to be signed off on at the White House next week.
It is the second time Mr Tybring-Gjedde has nominated President Trump for the honour, after claiming the US President should be considered for his meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in 2018.
Any politician serving in a national government is entitled to nominate someone for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The committee this year received 318 nominations – 211 individuals and 107 organisations.
Mr Tybring-Gjedde has been a member of the Norwegian Parliament since 2005.
He is known for being pro-Israel and anti-immigration.
This year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced on October 9th in Oslo.
