South Korean President Moon Jae-in said in April that Trump deserved the prize.

The most recent Americans to win the Peace Prize were then-President Obama in 2009 and former Vice President Al Gore in 2007. This year stands in stark contrast to last year, when Trump and Kim traded barbs and threats. In return, Trump promised to end "war games", or joint military exercises, with South Korea.

Henrik Urdal, director of the Peace Research Institute Oslo, said nuclear disarmament on the Korean peninsula "would be a very significant achievement and the committee would have to consider it" for an award.

Trump's summit with Kim is the first time a USA president had met face to face with a North Korean leader.
