Syria returns to Arab League – level 1

23-05-2023 07:00

Bashar al-Assad is the leader of Syria. He returns to the Arab League after 12 years.

He hopes that there will be peace. He wants to cooperate with other countries in the region. Some people do not like him. Parts of Syria are not under his control. Many refugees do not like him either. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates stop helping the people who fight against Assad. But Western countries still have rules against him.

The meeting is about solving problems in Sudan and Yemen. The Ukrainian president also comes to the meeting. He talks about his peace plan.

Difficult words: peace (the time without a war or fight), cooperate (to work together), rule (what someone must do).

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

What is the Ukrainian president's peace plan for solving conflicts?
