You can sail through other countries' waters as long as you don't touch shore.
It is called right of innocent passage. But I don't advise trying it in N Korean waters... They are insane and will shoot first and sink your boat...
There a few countries that are (for want of a better word) uptight and paranoid where strangers are concerned.
And it wise to stay out of Pirate infested waters also...
