Underlining the need to move beyond the procedural controversies of Copenhagen Accord, UN Chief Ban Ki-moon has asked the world to implement the key elements of the document.

Referring to a non-binding document that was drafted on December 18 by a small group of countries including the BASIC nations (China, India, Brazil and South Africa), Ban said: "It is important that we have to follow-up and implement what has been agreed in Copenhagen."

"There are two very important elements which we have to implement," He said.

The first, the head of the UN, noted is to have the financial flow of fast-start fund of USD 10 billion for the next three years.

"I am intending to establish soon a high level advisory group on it," he said.

The second element is for states to announce their mitigation targets.

"We will continue to have some negotiations, so that we will be able to have a legally binding treaty at the Conference in Mexico," Ban said.

"That is an absolutely important, crucially important, task which we have to fulfil."
