Hugo in Turkmenistan

Yes, Venezuela finally made it: our dictator "in the making"* is visiting Turkmenistan.
The governmental channel VTV announced Hugo is the first Venezuelan president to visit Turkmenistan. I wonder why he is going there. Did his entourage ask him to visit some new, exotic country in this new vacation time? Did Hugo want to see
the land of his role model, Saparmurat Niyazov, a man who promoted a personality cult similar Hugo seems to be aping? Too bad for Hugo that Niyazov died some years ago.

I wonder if Hugo would like a golden statue of his like this?

Why not? For a man like this:

*We can fairly talk about a dictatorship since this year, the same way as we can talk about a dictatorship in Belarus
