It was very significant because Mussolini, the Italian dictator had signed this agreement saying that he would stand with the League of Nations in preventing Hitler from uniting Germany with Austria and breaking other factors in the Treaty of Versailles. Despite this, Mussolini invaded Abyssinia which angered the League. Mussolini than invaded and took contol of the country, then left the League of Nations. After doing so he defied the union and signed and alliance with Hitler. Bad Man!
