SANTIAGO, Chile, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- The government of Chile says it will challenge the Cuban government about its harboring of alleged Chilean terrorists.

The Santiago Times said UDI leader Patricio Melero and Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno Monday discussed meeting with Cuban leaders to discuss the issue.

Members of the guerrilla group Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front assassinated politician Jaime Guzman in 1991, and many of the perpetrators fled to Cuba, The Santiago Times said.

The Chilean administration said Monday it wants to confront Cuban President Raul Castro at the CELAC-EU Summit. Friday, Melero disclosed new information concerning the investigation of Guzman's assassination, The Santiago Times reported.

Melero said in a press release that the investigation uncovered proof that several guilty men are currently living in Cuba.

A statement from the UDI said the party is considering filing a lawsuit against the Cuban government for harboring terrorists.
