Trump Again Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize, This Time for Serbia-Kosovo Accord
Sept. 12, 2020 (EIRNS)—For the second time, a member of parliament nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize on Sept. 11, this time together with the governments of Kosovo and Serbia, in response to the economic deal between Serbia and Kosovo brokered by President Trump.
“I have nominated the US Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House,” Swedish MP Magnus Jacobsson announced in a tweet. “Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace,” he said and included a copy of the letter supporting Trump’s nomination.
This announcement marks the second 2021 Nobel Peace Prize nomination for Trump, who received support from Norwegian MP Christian Tybring-Gjedde on Sept. 9 over the commander in chief’s role brokering relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. (Bahrain today also reached an agreement with Israel.)
Avdullah Hoti, the current prime minister of Kosovo, said on both Facebook and Twitter that he was “extremely grateful” for the nomination.
The Trump Administration spearheaded talks between the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo, with the two Balkan states agreeing to normalize economic relations in a meeting at the White House last week.
Trump praised the development during a signing ceremony in the Oval Office, saying the administration has “made additional progress on reaching peace in the Middle East.”
