United Nations Security Council resolution 497, adopted unanimously on 17 December 1981, calls on the State of Israel to rescind its de facto annexation of the Golan Heights.[1]

The Council requested the Secretary-General to report to the Council within two weeks on the implementation of the resolution, and in the event of non-compliance by Israel, the Council would reconvene, not later than 5 January 1982, to discuss further action under the United Nations Charter.
