Prime minister John Key's formal talks with Chilean leader Sebastian Pinera has been rejigged for the second time.

The meeting was shifted to Saturday so Pinera could attend the funeral of Venezuelan leader Hugh Chavez on Saturday (NZ time).

At the request of the Chileans, it has now been moved to tonight, after Key touches down from Colombia.

Officials learned of the shift last night but have waited until today to inform the media, prompting speculation it would delay the news being reported in New Zealand.

The 10 day mission has run into a series of logistical problems. Key's talks with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto had to be shifted because of anti-reform protests in the capital.
