“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde said.

Tybring-Gjedde, in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, said the nomination was deserving as Trump administration has played a vital role in the establishment of relations between Israel and the UAE.

“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.
