Elon Musk and Javier Milei met in Texas. They have common plans: A conference to “strengthen liberal ideas” will soon take place in Argentina. The Latin American country’s lithium reserves could be of interest to the Tesla boss.

Argentina’s libertarian President Javier Milei met with tech billionaire Elon Musk. Both agreed that the markets needed to be opened further and the ideas of freedom defended, the presidential office said after the meeting at the Tesla factory in Austin, Texas on Friday. “To an exciting and inspiring future,” wrote Musk on his messaging platform X.

The two published a photo that showed both of them in a good mood with a thumbs up. The image was spread by Milei’s followers, often with the words “Libertad” (Spanish for “freedom”), a slogan of the politician in Argentina. Milei himself also distributed a video, that showed him next to a futuristic Tesla “cybertruck.”

The Argentine delegation expressed the hope that the entrepreneur would invest in the South American country in the future. Argentina has large reserves of lithium, which is used, among other things, in the batteries of electric cars.

Milei also promised Musk that he would support him in the dispute between his news platform X and the Brazilian judiciary, the presidential office said in a statement. Because Musk had interfered in the investigations against so-called digital militias, proceedings for obstruction of justice and incitement to commit crimes were recently initiated against him.

Milei and Musk see themselves as ultra-liberals and defenders of free speech. “It was like love at first sight,” quoted the newspaper “news” the future Argentine ambassador to the USA, Gerardo Werthein, who attended the meeting in Texas. Milei and Musk also agreed to soon hold a conference to strengthen free ideas in Argentina.
