Tesla CEO Elon Musk met with Argentina President Javier Melei in California on Monday, on the sidelines of an economic conference both were speaking at.

During the first day of the Milken Institute’s global annual conference on Monday, Musk and Milei both spoke, in addition to meeting apart from the Los Angeles, California, conference for the second time in the last month. Following the meeting, Musk posted on X saying that he had a “great meeting with President Milei,” later saying that he thinks people should make investments into Argentina.

While it isn’t entirely clear what the meeting was about, Milei and Musk have both in the past expressed strong views on the preservation of free speech and support for cryptocurrencies, as well as being supportive of capitalism and free markets with little regulation.

In addition, Milei suggested after the meeting that space exploration been a topic the two discussed, while Musk included much discussion on the theme during his own Milken Institute interview.

“I can’t help but celebrate my friend’s effort to set foot on Mars, because we understand that space exploration is at the height of our destiny as an exploratory species too great to be confined to this planet,” Milei said during his own speech at the conference.

During his own interview, Stephen Milken said that the billionaire’s original title for the panel discussion had been “How To Save The Human Race, and Other Light Topics,” while Milei’s panel was dubbed an “Ode to Capitalism.”

Musk and Milei have also been supportive of each other on X in the past, exchanging kind words that indicated the two had had other important conversations.

“Today I had a great conversation with Elon Musk, where I thanked him for defending the ideas of freedom and supporting our work, especially considering everything he represents as an icon of freedom in the world,” Milei said following his election victory in December.

Along with Milei, Musk has met with a number of world leaders over the past few years, recently including Chinese Premier Li Qiang, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Thailand Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin, Italy Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, and still others.
