CUBA AND US OF­FI­CIALS TO MEET NEXT WEEK TO DEEPEN DE­TENTE

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS -

2Cuba and the United States will meet next week for a third round of talks on im­prov­ing re­la­tions, the Cuban gov­ern­ment said on Thurs­day, adding that the two coun­tries were not yet ne­go­ti­at­ing their multi­bil­lion-dol­lar claims against one an­other. A bi­lat­eral com­mis­sion will meet next Mon­day in Ha­vana to eval­u­ate progress made by the for­mer Cold War foes in putting their decades­old con­flict be­hind them, and to iden­tify new ar­eas of co­op­er­a­tion, said Gus­tavo Machin, the deputy di­rec­tor for U.S. af­fairs in the Cuban for­eign min­istry. “We will set the agenda for the rest for the year,” Machin told a news con­fer­ence. Cuba and the U.S. reestab­lished diplo­matic re­la­tions a year ago and have signed agree­ments on is­sues of com­mon con­cern such as the en­vi­ron­ment, postal ser­vices and di­rect flights.
