Israel and Sudan announced the normalization of ties in October 2020. Morocco joined the Abraham Accords in December.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Lord David Trimble nominated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in November for the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince.

Lord Trimble, the First Minister of Northern Ireland, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1998 together with John Hume for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland.

In accordance with the rules of the Nobel Prize Committee, since Trimble is the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, his decision to submit Netanyahu’s candidacy will lead the committee to discuss the issue.

Former Prime Minister Menachem Begin was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1978 for the peace he made with Egypt, and Yitzchak Rabin and Shimon Peres received the award in 1994 for their efforts to make peace with the Palestinians.
