Tear Gas in Parliament – level 2

26-03-2018 15:00

In 2008, Kosovo received its independence from Serbia, and now it is working on being a member of the EU.

There was a meeting and voting on a border deal with Montenegro. As this deal could help Kosovo be part of the EU visa-free travel zone.

The opposition, which is against the deal, threw tear gas into the meeting. Voting had to be suspended.

Difficult words: independence (self-government, freedom), deal (something which people agree to do), EU visa-free travel zone (a law so that European Union people can travel easily between countries without papers), suspend (put off, stop).

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