 FM 27-10 Chptr 9 Neutrality
Traditionally, neutrality on the part of a State not a party to the war has consisted in refraining from all participation in the war, and in preventing, tolerating, and regulating certain acts on its own part, by its nationals, and by the belligerents.
In order to protect its neutrality, a State whose territory is adjacent to a theater of war normally mobilizes a portion of its forces to prevent troops of either belligerent from entering its territory, to intern such as maybe permitted to enter, and generally to carry out its duties of neutrality.
Should the neutral State be unable, or fail for any reason, to prevent violations of its neutrality by the troops of one belligerent entering or passing through its territory, the other belligerent may be justified in attacking the enemy forces on this territory.

Later, countries began to conclude bilateral agreements obliging a state to be neutral in case of war of the other party with third state.
A permanently neutral state assumes responsibility to refrain from war in all circumstances except self-defense, not to participate in military unions and alliances and not to conclude agreements which could lead to involvement of the state into a war.
Since a traditionally neutral state has no obligations concerning non-involvement in a military conflict in respect to a particular state specified in an international agreement there is a difference between traditional and eventual types of neutrality.

 Hawaiian Kingdom: A Neutral Country
Neutral goods, with the exception of contraband of war, are not liable to capture under the enemy's flag.
Newer and stricter rules for the conduct of neutral States were expounded upon in the 1874 Brussels Conference, and later these principles were codified in the Fifth and Thirteenth Hague Conventions of 1907, governing, respectively, the rights and duties of neutral States in Land and Maritime warfare.
As a neutral State, the Hawaiian Kingdom was afforded all the protection of international law it had helped to establish, and by 1893 the principles of neutral rights were enough to preclude any other independent State from infringing upon the sovereign neutral rights of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

 Co-Opting Nazi Germany: Neutrality in Europe During World War II   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Neutrality, when practiced by nations, is not always neutral.
For example, Switzerland adopted "differentiated" neutrality in 1920, a decision which indicated a willingness to employ economic sanctions to communicate disapprobation of another nation; in 1938 the Swiss embraced "integral," or supposedly unconditional, neutrality.
What is striking about this in relation to Switzerland is not only that it puts that country on a par with fascist Spain, but that it challenges a pervasive myth the Swiss have about their wartime virtue and innocence.

A: The answer is no. Not immediately, at least, because neutrality violation results from moving into a neutral country's capital area or dropping corps off in a neutral country.
A: Generally speaking, when the capital region of a neutral country ceases to be occupied by its victor, said country immediately loses its "occupied neutral country" special status and it simply becomes a "neutral country".
Therefore, if, and only if, the occupation of the neutral country's capital region ceases because of a successful invasion by the other side, a logical (and appropriate) application of the relevant rules results in the formerly occupied neutral country becoming an ally of its former occupant.

 Power Engineering - Costa Rica aiming to become first CO<sub>2</sub>-neutral country
To achieve its goal, the country is counting on a joint effort by government and the private sector in a wide range of measures that go from cutting emissions and increasing carbon isolation to developing an international seal that certifies companies and institutions as "clean" from a global-warming point of view.
Environment and Energy Minister Roberto Dobles said that the country already enjoys an outstanding international reputation for nature conservation, but with the threat of global warming new and immediate steps must be taken.
Costa Rica's strategy to reduce to zero the impact of its greenhouse-gas emissions begins with an inventory of the country by regions to measure how much CO, is being sent into the atmosphere and where, the minister said.

In particular, internees of neutral countries are often denied POW Status because the officials in question have preconceived notions about POW Status and do not understand what legally constitutes a POW.
A neutral country is one that has pledged not to enter into either side of an international conflict.
Many internees of other neutral countries during World War II (Sweden, Portugal, and Russia) also have POW Status through the VA. It all depends on which regional office the veteran falls under, and whether the veteran has the records to prove what actually happened to him.
