North Korea Missile – level 1

16-10-2019 15:00

North Korea is doing experiments with a submarine missile.

Some members of the European Union do not like this. Last week, some UN members condemn North Korea. They ask North Korea to get rid of all its weapons. North Korea also has to prove that they do this.

A North Korean official says that the US does the same thing on October 2nd. It launches a missile. North Korea says that the EU countries say nothing.

The official says that the Trump government is pushing the other countries to be against North Korea’s weapons. The official says that North Korea can change its plans. It can use nuclear weapons again.

Difficult words: member (a person or a group of people in a bigger group), condemn (officially say that you do not like something), launch (send off into the skies or space).

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