North Korea Nuclear Tests – level 1

08-01-2020 07:00

There is a deal between North Korea and the US. It is about nuclear weapons. North Korea promises to stop all nuclear tests. It can put away its nuclear weapons.

Last week, the leader of North Korea says that he wants to test a new weapon soon. He is angry because the US starts new sanctions against North Korea. Also, the US continues military training with South Korea. North Korea does not like this.

The US president is hopeful. He says that the relationship between the US and North Korea is good. He hopes that the leader of North Korea does not start nuclear tests again.

Difficult words: nuclear weapon (a bomb that is very dangerous and can destroy a very large area), sanction (a penalty that one country does to another country), relationship (the way in which two or more people or groups feel towards each other).

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