Iran Nuclear Program – level 1

10-01-2020 07:00

The Iranian government makes an agreement with other countries. It says that it will not work on nuclear weapons. Other countries also put sanctions on Iran. In 2018, the US government leaves the agreement.

Last year, Iran works on its nuclear program. It is not supposed to do this. Iran says that it needs help from the sanctions. It says that it is going to work on its program even more if it does not get help.

Recently, the US kills an important Iranian military leader. People are worried. Iran may want to make a nuclear weapon because of this. However, Iran does not have enough supplies to do this yet.

Difficult words: agreement (when a person or a group agrees to do something, a deal), nuclear (a type of power that is very strong), sanctions (rules on a country that make it hard for the country to do work).

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