Russia on Kim and Trump – level 1

25-09-2017 07:00

The relationship between North Korea and the USA is not good. Trump and Kim Jong-un are trading insults. They do this though media. The whole world watches them.

Sergey Lavrov is Russia’s Foreign Minister. He speaks for Russia. He says that the situation is bad. He says that Russia does not want war with North Korea. Towards the end of his speech, he compares Trump and Kim to two boys in kindergarten.

Difficult words: relationship (the way that people or countries get along), insult (something mean that you say about another person), compare (say that somebody is like something).

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