United Nations Security Council resolution 662, adopted unanimously on 9 August 1990, recalling resolutions 660 (1990) and 661 (1990), the Council decided that the annexation of Kuwait by Iraq under any form was illegal.

The Council called upon all States and international organisations not to recognise the annexation, further asking States to refrain from any action that may constitute an indirect recognition of the annexation. It also demanded Iraq rescind its actions in Kuwait after the invasion, keeping the situation on its agenda.
