Pakistan would adhere to restrictions imposed against any country under its international obligations, stated Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani on Monday.

The prime minister's statement was in response to a question asked on whether there was any US pressure regarding the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project. The prime minister was speaking to the media after paying his respects at the mausoleum of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

"Pakistan as a member of the international community has to follow any sanctions imposed," the Prime Minister said.

When asked about ties with India,  he said it was vital that the two countries move toward resolving core issues, as war is not a solution.

On the NFC award, he said it was a consensus award and it would go a long way in empowering the provinces.
