Iran Nuclear Deal – level 1

16-09-2019 07:00

The USA, UK, France, Germany, China and Russia make a deal with Iran in 2015. For Iran, the deal means that they cannot enrich uranium.

People enrich uranium to make nuclear weapons. This means that Iran cannot make nuclear weapons. For the USA and EU, the deal means that they cannot put sanctions on Iran.

Last year, Trump pulls out from the deal. He puts sanctions on Iran. This is not good for the Iranian economy. Iran starts to pull out of the deal, too. They start to enrich uranium.

Iran says that they do not want to make a nuclear weapon. They want European countries to save the deal. Europe still respects the deal.

Difficult words: deal (an official plan to do something), enrich (make more powerful), sanction (a block, doing something which is economically bad to another country).

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