Robert O'Brien Offered To Nominate Trump For The Nobel Peace Prize

US National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien called for nominating the head of state Donald Trump for the Nobel peace prize for a diplomatic breakthrough in relations between Israel and the UAE.

"I think it's really wonderful when you turn around and look at what the President did in establishing peace," the Hill quoted O'Brien as saying.

"It will not surprise me if the President is eventually nominated for a Nobel prize for this. Today's work is an example of why he is considered and should be the main candidate for the Nobel peace prize," his adviser added.

The Hill recalls that in September 2019, during the UN General Assembly, Trump said that he would have received the Nobel peace prize if "they (the prizes) were distributed honestly."

On the eve of the US President Donald Trump said that the authorities of Israel and the UAE reached an agreement on the full normalization of relations. "Today, we have achieved tremendous success; this is a historic peace agreement between our great friends - Israel and the UAE, " he tweeted.

The agreement states that the leaders of Israel and the UAE "agreed to the full normalization of relations." In particular, as part of the agreements reached, Israel agreed to stop the implementation of the plan to Annex a part of the Palestinian territories.

"The historic diplomatic success will contribute to the promotion of peace in the Middle East region," the leaders of the United States, Israel, and the UAE said in a joint statement.

It also says that delegations from Israel and the UAE will meet in the coming weeks to sign bilateral agreements related to investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, energy, health, culture, the environment, the establishment of embassies and other areas.

The UAE became the third Arab country to agree to establish active diplomatic relations with Israel.
