NEW DELHI:  The United Nation's World Food Programme (WFP) won the Nobel Peace Prize for its work on dealing with world hunger and food security issues. 

WFP said that they hope this recognition will further strengthen its cooperation with India.

WFP had been working for around five decades in various programmes to deal with nutrition security issues. 

WFP was lauded for helping in bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for a role as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war.
