Neutral? You mean like in color? I vote for Sudan in that case.

There really are no neutral countries. Switzerland may come closest but even it has it's own interests of course and will make agreements to ensure them.

I think the question was : most neutral.

The words cancel out. To be neutral you must be so completely. To be less overt is not "most neutral". It's like saying "A little bit pregnant". The topic would be talking about something accurate if it were titled "least overt" rather than "most neutral". You can be neutral between warring parties but you cannot be entirely neutral in all things. So it is inaccurate to say "most neutral" as no nation is such.

New Zealand did that cos it was the great USA, would they do it if suppose Iran attacked Iraq and asked for help ??... I think in diplomacy one cannot be neutral, you have to always keep thinking about what your own country will gain from it and how you can get ahead of others.

because it was the great USA? this was at the same time as we were chasing a very important free trade deal...which then fell through because we wouldn't support the invasion of iraq. it actually harmed our exports and yet our government did what was right rather than chase the money. of that i am very proud

I'm quite suprised that Sweden wasn't mentioned once as it is a neutral country
