Paulsen, a Norwegian, praised the Norwegian Nobel Committee, interpreting their decision as a "recognition of the signals that President Obama has given to rid the world of the threat of nuclear weapons." Paulsen commented on the peace prize decision as a leader of a 25-million strong faith community committed to being peace-makers. Paulsen said he thought the award was a "signal" from the committee, encouraging Obama to "stay the course" in working "collaboratively with multiple nations around the world in the interest of stability." "For that I commend them and I congratulate him," Paulsen said.
