India and China Fight – level 1

25-06-2020 07:00

India and China are neighboring countries. It means that they are next to each other. The border is near India’s Galwan Valley. India and China both want to control the border. It brings many problems.

In 1962, a war is on the border. India and China agree to stop the war. However, they are never happy with the situation.

Two years ago, India and China officials meet. They agree not to fight again.

However, on Monday a big fight starts on the border. Twenty Indian soldiers die. Some soldiers get hurt. It is the biggest fight in the last 40 years.

Many people worry that a war can start. India and China have nuclear bombs. Many people can die if a war starts.

Difficult words: border (the official line between countries), war (when countries fight with each other), nuclear bomb (a very dangerous bomb that kills many people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
