Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on July 10 visited the set of the TV series “Diriliş Ertuğrul” (“Resurrection: Ertuğrul”) in Istanbul’s Beykoz district. 

Maduro, his wife, Cilia Flores, and an accompanying delegation received information regarding the TV series from the producer Mehmet Bozdağ and director Metin Günay and chatted with the actors.

The Venezuelan president also wore the traditional Turkic hat of börk and forged iron on the set.

Diriliş Ertuğrul is a historical drama about the father of the Ottoman state, Ertuğrul Gazi.

It is being aired on the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) and it is the channel’s most popular TV series to date.

Maduro shared a series of tweets on relations with Turkey, complete with a video of  President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s inauguration on July 9 and a well-known 1970s song of a Turkish movie – Selvi Boylum Al Yazmalım – playing in the background. 

He called the inauguration day “extraordinary,” saying he met many businesspeople and “worked to strengthen cooperation in the fields of mining, agriculture, and tourism.”

He also called on all Turkish entrepreneurs and investors to expand these ties for the sake of development. “Today, Turkey and Venezuela embark on the path to prosperity and development. We cannot miss this opportunity,” Maduro said.

“We have all the conditions to march together toward the happiness and well-being of our peoples. Long live the relations between Turkey and Venezuela!” he added.

“Venezuela wants peace, development and mutual benefit,” Maduro added.
