President Obama’s choice as Nobel Peace Prize Laureate for 2009 may be a surprise, but it’s a surprise that Danish political parties seem to applaud.

Foreign Minister Per Stig Møller says he is happy with the award and sees it as a recognition of Obama’s ‘soft’ foreign policy.

The former Social Democratic foreign minister Mogens Lykketoft is equally satisfied.

“Obama has set a completely new agenda on war and peace, rearmament and disarmament. The prize can be used to underline the agenda he has put in place,” Lykketoft says.

He adds there are probably two main reasons for the choice – Obama’s speech in Prague on the necessity of getting rid of nuclear weapons and also his initiative at the United Nations recently at which nuclear disarmament was put on the agenda there.

Social Liberal Foreign Policy spokesman and also a former foreign minister Niels Helveg Petersen says he is surprised that Obama was awarded the prize, but that there are good reasons for the decision.

“I didn’t imagine that a completely new president could be awarded the prize, so it is a surprise… But I understand the reasoning. Barack Obama has many new attitudes and works for reconciliation,” Helveg Petersen says.
