North Korea will get food - level 3, A12
North Korea is a poor country between two very rich countries, China and South Korea. However, it had strong military ambitions in the past. It wanted to build an atomic bomb. It was a big problem for their neighbours, as neither South Korea nor Japan have nuclear weapons.
People in North Korea are hungry. They need food. So after many years of frozen negotiations, North Korean leaders agreed to stop building an atomic bomb in exchange for food. They signed a deal with the USA and they will get 240 000 tons of food. The food aid is mostly for children and pregnant women.
People believe that this is the beginning of a new time without nuclear weapons in both Koreas.
