request by the Detaining Power of the wounded, sick and shipwrecked, or medical personnel
and chaplains to a neutral State or to a humanitarian organization, to undertake the
functions which should be performed by a Protecting Power, unless the consent has

The Council of State of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau does not recognize as legal the request addressed by the Detaining Power to a neutral country or a humanitarian organization to undertake the functions performed by a Protecting Power, unless the State on which the wounded, sick and shipwrecked persons depend has already agreed to that request.

Objection to the reservation made upon accession by Guinea-Bissau to the Geneva Convention
II concerning Article 13 (2):
[...] exceed, in the opinion of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, the purpose and intent of these Conventions and are therefore unacceptable to it. This declaration shall not otherwise affect the validity of the said Geneva Conventions under international law as between the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of Guinea-Bissau.
The reservations are similar to reservations expressed by others previously with respect
to the same or different conventions and concerning which the Government of the United
States has previously declared its views. The attitude of the Government of the United
States with respect to all the reservations by the Republic of Guinea-Bissau parallels
its attitude toward such other reservations. The Government of the United States,
while rejecting the reservations, accepts treaty relations with the Republic of Guinea-Bissau.
In relation to the reservation made [....] by the Republic of Guinea-Bissau to [...]

The Government of the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen declares that the accession
of the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen to this Conventions by no means implies
recognition of Israel.
The Government of Israel takes note that by declarations […] the Popular Democratic
Republic of Yemen adhered to the four Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949 relating
to the protection of war victims.
The said instruments were accompanied by a declaration of a political character in respect to Israel. In the view of the Government of Israel, this is not the proper place for making such political pronouncements, which are, moreover, in flagrant contradiction to the principles, objects and purposes of the said Conventions. The said declaration cannot in any way affect whatever obligations are binding upon the Popular Democratic Republic of Yemen under general international law or under particular treaties.
This Accession does not imply recognition of Israel or entering with it into relations governed by the Conventions thereto acceded.
Israel has taken note of the political character of the declaration made by Kuwait
[ ]. In the view of the Government of Israel, this declaration is inadmissible and
the Government of Israel formally expresses its objections to this declaration and
as far as its relations with Kuwait are concerned, it reserves the right to act on
the basis of strict reciprocity with regard to issues that are subject to these Conventions.
On Article 10:

The Portuguese Government only accepts article 10 of Conventions I, II and III […] with the reservation that requests by the Detaining Power to a neutral State or to a humanitarian organization to undertake the functions normally performed by Protecting Powers are made with the consent or agreement of the Government of the country of which the persons to be protected are nationals (Countries of origin).
[...] the Portuguese Republic will cease to assume the rights and obligations arising

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics will not recognize the validity of requests by the Detaining Power to a neutral State or to a humanitarian organization, to undertake the functions performed by a Protecting Power, unless the consent of the Government of the country of which the protected persons are nationals has been obtained.
In accordance with the Joint Declaration of the Government of the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Government of the People's Republic of
China on the Question of Hong Kong signed on 19 December 1984, the Government of the
United Kingdom will restore Hong Kong to the People's Republic of China with effect
from 1 July 1997. The Government of the United Kingdom will continue to have international
responsibility for Hong Kong until that date. Therefore, from that date the Government
of the United Kingdom will cease to be responsible for the international rights and
obligations arising from application of the Convention to Hong Kong.
Rejecting the reservations which States have made with respect to the Geneva Convention

Government in Korea, as set forth in General Assembly Resolution 195 (III) of 12 December
1948, and its accession shall not be construed as recognizing any Contracting Party
thereto which the Republic of Korea has not hitherto recognized.
