Leaders of the two Koreas emerge as Nobel peace prize contenders

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have emerged as strong contenders for a joint Nobel Peace Prize, in their diplomatic efforts to broker peace on the Korean peninsula and denuclearise the North. Media speculation first appeared in April 2018 when Moon downplayed the prospect of winning the prize following his first historic summit with Kim. At that time he also suggested U.S. President Donald Trump should get the honour instead.

Some online sports betting sites have listed Moon and Kim as joint top contenders for the award, while Trump was also listed as in the running, either by himself or together with other individuals. The winner of the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize is set to be announced at a news conference. There are 331 candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2018, according to the Nobel Prize organisation, though the shortlist is not revealed beforehandMoon and Kim have been trying to improve ties in the Korean peninsula, which has had a fraught history.
