Tuesday Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un signed the historic document that commits North Korea to work towards nuclear disarmament.
– What’s going on now is historic, Progress Party member Per-Willy Amundsen told NRK.
– A process is underway to ensure world peace in the future. It’s a fragile process, but we must of course do what we can to help this process yield good results. I believe we can accomplish this by sending a clear signal, namely by awarding Trump the Nobel Peace Prize.
– This is a nudge
The agreement signed by the two state leaders Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un yesterday has been criticized for not being sufficiently binding and too unspecific. However, the two Norwegian MPs don’t consider a peace prize nomination premature.
–The agreement isn’t binding, but it opens for visits both ways, as well as getting the disarmament process underway and putting a damper on the joint military exercises of USA and South Korea, says Progress Party member Christian Tybring-Gjedde.
– So this is a nudge to make Donald Trump finish what he’s started, Tybring-Gjedde continues.
– It wouldn’t be the first time the peace prize is awarded to someone in the midst of a process, says Per-Willy Amundsen.
– We will of course follow the development closely, but the fact that we have come this far is in my opinion worthy of a peace prize.
