The award is one of five - including Chemistry, Literature, Physics and Medicine - set up by Swedish industrialist, inventor and armaments manufacturer Alfred Nobel. Who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018? Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad have won the 2018 Nobel peace prize. They were recognised for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon in war. The committee said Congolese doctor Denis Mukwege had been “the foremost, most unifying symbol both nationally and internationally of the struggle to end sexual violence in war and armed conflict”. Nadia Murad of the Yazidi minority in Iraq was captured by Isis, raped and subjected to other abuses. The committee said she showed “uncounted courage in recounting her own suffering”. The winners are receiving their award today, December 10 … [Read more...] about Who won the Nobel Peace Prize 2018, who won in past years and what did Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad do?

I agree with South Korean President Moon Jae-in: if anyone deserves the Nobel prize for bringing about peace between North and South Korea it’s Donald Trump. In the unlikely event that the Nobel prize committee ever agrees, I can think of two very tempting reasons why the Donald should accept.The first – which I’m sure must appeal to a man of Trump’s vanity – is: “Why not? I deserve it.” And it’s true, he does. Do you remember all those articles that appeared in the MSM after Trump got elected, expertly explaining why his lack of diplomacy, his brashness, his ignorance, his brinkmanship, his naivety were the exact opposite of what were needed to bring a crazy like Kim Jong-un to the negotiating table? When Trump threatened to destroy North Korea in his first speech to the United Nations and called Kim Jong-un “Rocket Man”, the usual suspects were appalled. Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, who was observed … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Donald Trump Must Turn Down the Nobel Peace Prize

(Manuel Balce Ceneta/AP) British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has become the latest foreign politician to advocate for a Nobel Peace Prize for President Trump — unless he makes a mess out of things. “If he can fix North Korea and if he can fix the Iran nuclear deal, then I don’t see why he’s any less of a candidate for a Nobel Peace Prize than Barack Obama, who got it before he even did anything,” Johnson told Sky … [Read more...] about Another top official says Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize (unless he messes things up)
South Korea’s executive Blue House confirmed on Monday that President Moon Jae-in said U.S. President Donald Trump “should win the Nobel Peace Prize” for his efforts in Korea. Moon was holding a meeting of his Cabinet on Monday when the conversation turned to a letter of congratulations written to Moon by Lee Hee-ho, the widow of former South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, who died in 2009. During his presidency, Kim was awarded the 2000 Nobel Peace Prize to recognize “his work for democracy and human rights in South Korea and in East Asia in general, and for peace and reconciliation with North Korea in particular.” The crowning achievement of his work with North Korea was a summit meeting in the summer of 2000 with Kim Jong-il, father of current dictator Kim Jong-un. A pessimist might glumly note that the meeting with Kim Jong-il ultimately went nowhere, relations with North Korea degenerated to the brink of war over the following two decades, and Kim … [Read more...] about South Korean President Moon: Trump ‘Should Win the Nobel Peace Prize’
POLITICS 05/02/2018 02:28 pm ET "President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean peninsula," write the 18 Republicans. By Amanda Terkel A group of 18 House Republicans has nominated President Donald Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on North Korea. “Although North Korea has evaded demands from the international community to cease its aggression for decades, President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean peninsula,” write the lawmakers in their nomination letter. “We can think of no one more deserving of the Committee’s recognition in 2019 than President Trump for his tireless work to bring peace to our world.” Rep. Luke Messer (R-Ind.) is the leader of the effort, which he first proposed in March. Today, 17 of my House colleagues joined me in nominating @realDonaldTrump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Nominated For The Nobel Peace Prize By House Republicans
