Cuba, United States meet on migration in latest sign of thawing ties

By Marc Frank HAVANA (Reuters) – Officials from the United States and Cuba met in Havana on Thursday to discuss longstanding migration accords in the latest sign of a new collaborative spirit between the Cold War foes. The migration talks are the highest public contact between the two governments which do not have diplomatic relations, and recent meetings have been increasingly constructive, officials say. The U.S. delegation was headed by Edward Alex Lee, acting deputy assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs. There was no immediate confirmation from Cuba as to who led its delegation.
