Maleeha Lodhi said Pakistan's firm resolve against corrupt practices calls for a more proactive role by its partners in line with international legal instruments, including the UN Convention Against Corruption.
She said estimates of Pakistan's stolen financial resources stashed abroad run into millions of dollars, for which the government seeks international cooperation to complement its intensified domestic efforts.
The Pakistani envoy also called for addressing loopholes that impede developing countries' ability to combat illicit financial flows.
