USA and Iran – level 1

29-05-2019 15:00

The relationship between the USA and Iran is not good at the moment. The Pentagon is the military part of the USA. People say that the Pentagon wants to send more soldiers to the Middle East.

The Pentagon wants to move 10,000 soldiers, ships and weapons there. The Pentagon wants the forces to be around Iran. We do not know if the White House approves this.

Difficult words: relationship (how things are between two countries – if they are good or bad), force (soldiers and war machines), approve (say ‘yes’ to something).

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