Afghanistan Peace Deal – level 2
The Taliban said that the US and the Afghan government broke the peace deal. The Taliban said that it wants the US and Afghan officials to keep the deal.
The Taliban claimed that it reduced attacks on Afghan police and soldiers; however, the US attacks Afghan people by drones. The US military spokesman said that Taliban´s claims were not true and that the US will continue to protect its partners.
The spokesman also said that the US did not break the peace deal. He asked Taliban to reduce violence and to focus on the coronavirus in Afghanistan. The coronavirus is spreading across the country, and the Taliban said that it will stop fighting in areas with the coronavirus. It will also let health workers help ill people.
Difficult words: claim (to say officially that something happened, usually without evidence of it), drone (a small aircraft that does not have a pilot and a person on the ground controls it), focus (to concentrate on one thing).
