Missile Bases in North Korea – level 1

29-01-2019 07:00

This news is about North Korea. Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un meet in June. They sign an agreement. It is about removing nuclear weapons. However, the agreement is not very specific.

People do not know what North Korea is doing now.

There is a project which is not part of any country. The project looks at North Korea. It finds 20 missile bases. People do not know about these missile bases. North Korea does not say that it has them. They are secret.

This new information comes before another meeting of Trump and Kim. They are going to meet in February in Vietnam.

Difficult words: agreement (an official document to agree to do something together), remove (take away), missile base (a building for starting missiles/rockets).

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