Lord Trimble, the first Minister of Northern Ireland, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1998 for his efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland. 

According to the criteria required to be nominated for the award, nominees must be intellectuals, academics or members of parliament, former Nobel laureates or judges in international courts, and since Trimble is the Nobel Peace Prize winner, his decision to nominate Prime Minister Netanyahu will bring Committee to discuss the issue.

This is not the first time that Netanyahu's name has been mentioned as a candidate to win the Nobel Peace Prize, after in September Italian MP Paulo Grimoldi announced that he had recommended the Prime Minister to the award committee.

Grimoldi also signed a number of other European MPs on Netanyahu's candidacy for the prestigious award.

The reasons are peace with Bahrain, peace with the United Arab Emirates and talks with Saudi Arabia, which opened Saudi airspace to Israel and discussed Saudi recognition. Historical reasons. "
