It’s great for music festivals, concerts and … geopolitical summits of historic significance, apparently. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reportedly brought his own personal toilet to yesterday’s historic meeting with his South Korean counterpart , over fears South Korean spies could steal his excretions and gain insights into his health status. “Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels,” Lee Yun-keol, chief of North Korean studies at the Korea Institute for Defense Analyses, told the Washington Post . “The leader’s excretions contain information about his health status so they can’t be left behind.” That’s right. He’s essentially protecting himself against a literal info dump. (Sorry.) Kim Jong-un reportedly brought his own personal toilet to the Korea summit.

Some New Guidelines On Establishing Issues In
agency BEIJING (Reuters) – North Korea has agreed not to engage in activities hazardous to aviation without advanced notice, a U.N. aviation agency official said on Thursday, an assurance that could lead to major airlines resuming flights through its airspace.

REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon Airlines take indirect routings to avoid North Korea due to the threat posed from unannounced missile launches that are worrisome in the wake of the 2014 downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine. If the airspace was deemed safe, carriers could save fuel and time on some routes between Asia and Europe and North America. Officials from the Montreal-based International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) visited North Korea this week to discuss a request by Pyongyang to open a new air route that would pass through North Korean and South Korean airspace. “We received a solid assurance from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea that they will not be engaging in activities hazardous for aviation without full advanced notice for the other states in the region, and that they would coordinate that activity to ensure that we could retain safety,” ICAO Air Navigation Bureau Director Stephen Creamer said upon his return to Beijing. Asked whether this meant international airlines would resume flights over North Korea, ICAO Regional Director Arun Mishra said: “It’s always a possibility. … We’re continuing toward establishing a more healthy relationship.” ICAO and North Korea’s General Administration of Civil Aviation are also coordinating on an upcoming air traffic management workshop, the U.N. agency said in a statement.
