Thanks for the Japan's steady growth of economy negatively, India is now the third world country officially, and Japan is one level below India.

Did you bother to read the article?

An agreement in principle has been reached for South Korea to take over Japan's role, according to two sources briefed on discussions brokered by the United Nations aviation agency.

A rare example of common sense and good planning triumphing over historical political posturing. Congratulations to all involved.

Air safety is more important than national pride.

This is an article about air safety. Air safety should be of primary concern whether you are in the air or on the ground. The article convinced me that the system has been outdated for years. That's scary. It is belatedly heading for a major overhaul--and not soon enough. No one is "caving". in this matter of life and death.

Happy they could react a deal. Tip of the hat to the UN aviation agency

Wisely stated yet again, old man. South Korea keeps backing down. Another win to Japan.

English is the exclusive language of ATC, and likely the reason South Korea took responsibility for the route.

If you wish to compare for yourself here are links to listen to Narita Approach Control and Incheon Approach Control.

I just love these patriotic comments blinded by pure ignorance.

The fact is China and South Korea have been demanding Japan to join the multiparty discussions for some time already but Japan kept dismissing it.

Good on ICAO for knocking some senses into Japan.
