Neutrality Law and Legal Definition
Neutrality refers to the legal status of a state that adopts a stand of impartiality towards two other states that are at war with each other. An impartial state accords recognition of the state of belligerency between the two warring parties. Neutrality creates rights and duties that fall upon all concerned.
In a United Nations enforcement action, the rules of neutrality apply to impartial members of the United Nations except so far as they are excluded by the obligation of such members under the United Nations Charter.
