Let's say there is a president of a country who was at the international meeting and he accepted to participate in some kind of expensive project. Commenting his action, can I construct something like "taking on obligations on sth"

...taking on such obligations on the poor country is irresponsible.

The problem with your sample is the on...on construct. Instead, you would use

taking on such obligations by the poor country is irresponsible.

or

putting such obligations on the poor country is irresponsible.
