A USD 1 million-grant from Venezuela to cope with recent heavy rains is terribly complicated for the Chilean Government as it could affect its decision to back Venezuela's nomination to the United Nations (UN) Security Council, local daily La Tercera stated.
 
In order to prevent the acceptance from being construed as for political purposes, the Chilean Foreign Ministry resolved that the Venezuelan contribution should be managed exclusively by the National Emergency Office, Ministry of the Interior, DPA quoted.

However, the newspaper claimed that the central government is to coordinate with authorities to deliver the grant personally to the residents of the VIII Region, in northern Chile.

Last week, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez announced a contribution of USD 1 million in building materials, fuel and food, among others, for the homeless from heavy rains.

"He (López) knew it (information about his possible assassination), too. Why did he turn himself in? He and his family were aware of that," said the legislator in an interview with daily newspaper El Universal.
