Saudi Arabia may get a nuclear weapon – level 1

26-09-2023 15:00

The leader of Saudi Arabia says that the country will want a nuclear weapon if Iran gets one.

This worries some people in the US government. They are trying to make Saudi Arabia and Israel friends. But it is very difficult. There are problems with the Palestinians. And the US Congress must agree. This is hard because Saudi Arabia does not treat people well.

The biggest problem is about nuclear things. Some people in the US government want to change the rules to help Saudi Arabia. But many others do not like this. They do not want Saudi Arabia to have nuclear weapons.

Difficult words: nuclear weapon (a rocket which can kill many people), treat (to behave towards someone in a certain way), rule (what someone must or must not do).

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

What are the main arguments for changing the rules to help Saudi Arabia get nuclear weapons?
