How can I copy a chart to another sheet in same workbook with VBA ?

I want to copy a chart form several sheets to one sheet in VBA.  I do not want to paste it as a picture, but as a normal chart.

This is the code that I try, but it does not work. When I do a PasteSpecial, it copies as a picture, and I do not want this

CopyChart is called by CopyAllCharts


Sub Copyallcharts()
    Call CopyChart("BE")
    Call CopyChart("NL")  
End Sub

Sub CopyChart(sCountry As String)

    Dim oWSChartImport                            As Worksheet
    Dim oWSChartExport                            As Worksheet
    Dim oSHPChart                                 As ChartObject
    Dim sRange                                    As String

    Select Case sCountry
        Case "BE"
            sRange = "A3"
        Case "NL"
            sRange = "A30"
    End Select

    'copy chart
    Set oSHPChart = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("CHART_" & sCountry).ChartObjects("CHART_" & sCountry & "_ALL")

    'trying to paste it, but it does not work

End Sub
