North and South Korea conflict – level 1

10-11-2021 07:00

North and South Korea are two countries on the Korean peninsula. These two countries fight with each other in a war. The war ends in 1953. South Korean leaders do not officially end the conflict.

Now, North and South Korea have problems all the time. North Korea makes dangerous rockets and bombs. South Korea and the US are not happy about the weapons.

Moon Jae-in is the president of South Korea. He wants to officially make peace with North Korea. North Korea says that a peace deal is possible. Sadly, experts do not believe that it will be easy.

Difficult words: peninsula (a long piece of land in a lake or sea), conflict (a war or fight), peace (a time without a war or fight).

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