North and South Korea conflict – level 2

10-11-2021 07:00

The war between North and South Korea ended in 1953, but officially, it never ended.

In 1953, South Korean officials did not agree to sign a deal which would end the war. The two countries never fought again, but the two Koreas stayed apart. Now, Moon Jae-in, South Korea’s president, wants to end the conflict before his presidency ends in 2022.

In September, Moon spoke to the United Nations, and he repeated that he wanted to officially end the conflict. North Korean officials said that a deal was possible, but the deal was not easy to make. The US and South Korea asked North Korea to end its weapons program, which North Korea does not want to do.

Difficult words: conflict (a fight or argument), presidency (the job of a president).
