Iran’s Nuclear Program – level 2

08-01-2021 15:00

In 2015, Iran and many other countries signed a nuclear deal. The deal meant that Iran would reduce its nuclear facilities. Everything is changing now.

The relationship between Iran and the US got worse in the last months. As a result, Iran decided to break the deal and get some uranium. Uranium is a fuel for nuclear weapons, and some countries worry that Iran is planning to make a nuclear weapon. Iran said that it did not want to make a weapon, but some countries do not believe this.

People use uranium in many industries and also to make energy. It takes a long time to make a weapon and it has many components which are not easy to make.

Difficult words: facility (a building or a factory), uranium (a heavy metal which can be very dangerous to people and all living things), component (one part of a machine or system).
