Both women were guests of current Argentinian president, Christina Kirchner, all three of which are pictured above.
Betancourt was visiting Argentina to thank it's governement for advocating the release of political prisoners across Latin America, and to discuss the plight of those still being held byt the FARC in Colombia. Madonna was visiting the presedential palace where she famously filmed the movie, Evita, 12 years ago.
