Iran’s Nuclear Program – level 1

08-01-2021 15:00

Iran and other countries sign a deal in 2015. Iran has some uranium. Uranium is a heavy metal. It can be very dangerous. People use it in industry and medicine. Nuclear power stations make energy from uranium.

People use uranium in nuclear weapons, too. Some countries worry that Iran wants to make a nuclear weapon. The deal stops Iran.

Iran breaks the deal. The country wants to get more uranium now.

Iran says that the uranium is not for nuclear weapons. It is not easy to make a nuclear weapon. The weapon has many parts. It lasts a long time to make all the parts. Some countries do not believe Iran.

Difficult words: nuclear (something that relates to the smallest parts of things called atoms), power station (a factory which makes energy), nuclear weapon (a weapon that is very dangerous and it can destroy a big area).
