Chile to no longer host 2 major international summits

CLAUDIO REYES / AFP

Chile has pulled out of hosting two major international summits, including a UN climate change conference.

President Sebastian Pinera made the announcement as anti-government protests continue in the country.

He said his government needs "to prioritise re-establishing public order".

The UN is looking into alternative venues for the December's COP25 climate summit and next month's Apec trade forum.
