North Korea’s Rocket Test – level 2

06-11-2019 15:00

North Korea is testing a new rocket system. It is the third time since August.

This week, North Korea fired a rocket which flew more than 200 miles and landed in the sea between North Korea and Japan. North Korean news says that this rocket can totally destroy a target.

Last month, the US met with North Korea to discuss North Korea’s nuclear program. The meeting did not end well because North Korea said that the US has old-fashioned ideas. The US does not agree with that. However, North Korea says that the US must prepare a better plan before the end of December.

Difficult words: fire (to shoot), destroy (to damage something so badly that it is not possible to use it anymore), target (a person or an object which is attacked).

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