How to insert a CSV within xml element tag using Python?

Hi Team,
I have a CSV file which I have to read through and needs to insert the content within an XML file using Python ONLY ( as most of the code base we have in python only). I managed to find the first part, missing how to insert to XML under "specific" tags.
cat input.csv

import os,sys
import csv
from xml.etree import ElementTree as ET

str = ""

with open('input.csv', mode='r') as csv_file:
    csv_reader = csv.DictReader(csv_file)
    for row in csv_reader:
        str += '<Host_name="' + row["Host"] + '" Private_Addr="' + row["PRIVATEIP"] + '" Public_Addr="' + row["PUBLICIP"] + '" RACK_NO="' + row["RAC"] + '"/> \n'

I want to insert the above output in to the below XML, in between <HostNames>:

                                <Host name="node3" Pvt_IPADDR="" Pub_IPADDR="" RACK_NO="01"/>
                                <! --- The string I formatted , I want to put here" -->

Note: <HostNames> tag can be any where in the config.xml and new "str" I want to put to the end of <HostNames> only.

Any help, really appreciable.
