Trump–Kim Talks – level 1

06-03-2019 07:00

North Korea has nuclear weapons. The USA does not like this. The USA wants North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons. The USA puts sanctions on North Korea. North Korea does not like this.

This is a difficult situation. The leaders of the countries meet. Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un talk about it. They meet in Vietnam. They talk for two days.

North Korea can get rid of many nuclear weapons. To do this, North Korea wants all of the sanctions to stop. The USA does not want to stop all of them.

Nothing comes from the talks. Nothing is bad, and nothing is good.

Difficult words: nuclear weapons (bomb and rockets which can destroy cities and countries), get rid (put away), sanctions (rules on what a country can or cannot do).

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