United Nations and United States have been working on improving North Korea’s air space for travel. The ICAO was preparing to help North Korea’s aviation system improve. The United States discouraged the ICAO to do that until North Korea makes progress in Pyongyang to denuclearize the area.
This is significant to the rest of the world because it would ensure travel time to be shorter to certain destinations. Along with making progress for North Korea to ensure that aviation safety will guarantee that the country is serious about trying to denuclearize as much as possible. Denuclearizing Pyongyang would be a start for North Korea and would show the rest of the world that the country is going to try to make peace with South Korea.
