Iran and Saudi Arabia talks – level 1

16-03-2023 07:00

Since 2016, Iran and Saudi Arabia end their relationship. They do not do business together. They do not talk with each other. This brings problems to the whole Middle East. The situation is not safe.

China tries to change the situation. Iran and Saudi Arabia officials talk in China. The talks are not public. Last week, there are more talks. Both countries agree to cooperate again. It is important for them and for other countries, too.

Iran and Saudi Arabia agree to do business together again. They will respect each other’s power. They will not care about each other’s things.

Difficult words: relationship (how two or more people or things are connected), cooperate (to work together), respect (to accept other ideas or opinions).

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

What do you think will be the long-term effects of Iran and Saudi Arabia's renewed cooperation?
