WASHINGTON – The top American envoy for Western Hemisphere affairs will travel to Havana on Jan. 21 to 22 for talks on re-establishing U.S.-Cuba diplomatic relations, the State Department has said.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]

“The decision to re-establish diplomatic relations is certainly going to be a topic of that.

“And of course, issues surrounding that, including the reopening of embassies, requiring certain logistical arrangements, embassy operations, staffing, visa issues would also be topics as well,” Psaki said at a daily news briefing.
U.S. and Cuba moved on Dec. 17 to normalise relations following a bitter rivalry that had lasted for more than half a century, with an American embassy expected to be reopened in Havana within months.
Psaki declined to set a timeline for restored Washington-Havana ties, saying Jacobson’s visit is “just the beginning” of bilateral discussions.
During her stay in Havana, Jacobson would also have a new round of talks on migration with Cuban officials, which were suspended in 2011, but resumed in July 2013, Psaki said. (Xinhua/NAN)
