The most important thing to do in preparations for the UN climate change conference in Cancun is to recover trust, Mexican Environment Minister Juan Rafael Elvira Quezada said Friday.

Many countries in the world "unfortunately lost their trust" after the Copenhagen conference last December, Elvira told Xinhua in an interview.

"I think we have to work hard on recovering the trust of all the countries in the world," said Elvira.

He added developed countries and developing countries should first reach a concrete agreement at the upcoming conference, with the former giving the latter the aid they promised to relieve the effects of the climate change.

"The developed countries committed to give 10 billion U.S. dollars, we want to see where the money is ... if we see any signs the developed countries are going to give the aid, we can restore the trust in them during the conference in Cancun," Elvira said.

"I don't think we can reach a big agreement, if we see no financial aid promise fulfilled when the COP16 (UN climate change conference) opens in Cancun," Elvira added.

He promised that Mexico will offer a "clean, transparent and inclusive process" and he will travel around the world, doing his best to talk to all relevant countries to reach consensus in Cancun.
