Russia on Kim and Trump – level 3

25-09-2017 07:00

Russia’s Foreign Minister and most senior diplomat, Sergey Lavrov, expressed Russia’s stance on the current tensions between North Korea and the USA, comparing Trump and Kim to kindergarteners in his speech.

He said that it is naturally quite bad to exchange threats, and he thinks that it is unacceptable to simply sit back and look at the nuclear military gambles of North Korea as well as to start a war on the Korean peninsula.

He went on to say that Russia will continue to strive for the reasonable and not the emotional approach, instead of a kindergarten fight between children that no one can stop.

Difficult words: stance (a perspective), tensions (unfriendly relations), peninsula (a piece of land almost surrounded by water), strive (try to achieve something).
