"Pakistan will not be a part of [the] coalition of interested states against ISIL," Hussain said, specifying that Islamabad would only support multilateral action authorized under Chapter VII of the UN Charter.
This legislation enables the UN Security Council to determine "the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression" and grants it the power to take military and nonmilitary action to "restore international peace and security."
According to the Pakistani leader, Islamabad is implementing the UN Security Council resolutions against ISIL "in letter and spirit." In particular, Pakistan has introduced stronger financial management to observe and control overseas financial transactions through the State Bank of Pakistan.
"[Pakistani] security agencies are taking all possible measures to foil efforts by terrorist and extremist organizations to develop linkages with ISIL," Hussain said adding that Pakistan is sharing intelligence with its partners.
Russia as well has repeatedly stressed it would not become a party to any military coalition established without UN Security Council approval.
