Milei heading to pro-Trump event on heels of Blinken meeting

• Buenos Aires Times

rgentina's President Javier Milei will travel to Washington to deliver a speech at a conference full of Donald Trump supporters the same week that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken plans to meet with him in Buenos Aires. 

The Conservative Political Action Conference confirmed on its website that Milei will speak at its annual event that runs from February 21 to 24.

An exact date for the speech wasn't published and Milei's press office hasn't released an agenda for the trip, though Milei told Bloomberg News last week he intended to go. 

The US State Department announced Friday that Blinken will meet with Milei in the Argentine capital as part of a South America trip that stretches from February 20 to 23. US Assistant Secretary of State Brian Nichols met with Milei's Cabinet Chief Nicolás Posse in Argentina last week.
