CARACAS, Venezuela — Just a week after the Venezuelan president acknowledged that the country was building unmanned drones in cooperation with Iran, Hugo Chavez is expecting this weekend to play host to his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at his Miraflores presidential palace in Caracas. The pair have spent their entire tenures provoking Washington. The latest news, alongside the pronouncements and images over the weekend, will further exacerbate already tense relations. Indeed, last time Ahmadinejad was at the palace in January, they joked about building a nuclear weapon.
