The Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced in one week, and John Kerry is pointed out as the favorite to receive this year's Nobel Peace Prize, along with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif, the Norwegian newspaper Nettavisen reports.
Friday in one week, the Nobel Committee's leader, Kaci Kullmann Five, announces who will be awarded this year's Nobel Peace Prize. In the American press, it has been speculated high and low that US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif, who has been named candidates for the prize, will receive it either this year or next year.
The two foreign ministers have been credited for making the controversial nuclear agreement between Iran and the major powers to 'disarm the Iranian nuclear program, in exchange for sanctions against Iran being repealed'.
The Washington Free Beacon writes that rumors have circulated for months that the two will be awarded.
Sweden's former foreign minister, Carl Bildt was quick to suggest Kerry and Zarif as laureates right after the nuclear agreement was announced in July.
"I think the work of the Nobel Committee was much easier this year ," Bildt tweeted.
The magazine The Week would not exclude that the Peace Prize could go to Kerry and Zarif.
"A Nobel Peace Prize to John Kerry? It can happen," wrote The Week, the day after the announcement.
Because it's a mad, mad world!!!
