The US helps Iran – level 2

04-10-2019 15:00

The US worked on a new system of help for people in Iran. Iran is under sanctions because there is a problem with its military program. Some people worry that Iran does not get enough food and medicine.

The US thinks that some money from the help to Iran can help military or terrorist groups, and this must change. There must be better rules and control.

Officials say that the new system is good for international companies. They can understand the rules better and they can do business with Iran.

Difficult words: sanction (a situation when one country stops business with another country because this country does something bad), military (connected with war or soldiers), rules (instructions that tell people what they can do).

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