India and China Fight – level 2
On Monday, Indian and Chinese soldiers fought on a border road near India´s Galwan Valley. The road is a part of a 2,100-mile area that both countries want to control.
In 1962, there was a war in this area, and India and China agreed to stop fighting. However, the problems never stopped, and both countries said that they wanted to get control of the area.
Two years ago, Indian and Chinese officials agreed to keep peace on the border. The problem is that both countries have nuclear weapons, and many people worry that a big conflict could start. Officials said that the counties did not want to start a war; however, Monday´s fight could make the relationship between India and China more difficult. It was the biggest fight in the last 40 years.
Difficult words: keep peace (when there is no war and people are happy), nuclear weapon (a bomb that kills many people), relationship (how two or more people or groups behave towards each other).
