Published on January 11, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- A new round of migration talks took place on Thursday between delegations of the United States and Cuba, headed, respectively, by the assistant undersecretary of the Bureau for Western Hemisphere Affairs of the State Department, Edward Alex Lee, and the general director for the United States of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Josefina Vidal.

According to a statement to the press by the Cuban delegation to the talks, the meeting was held in a respectful environment. The state of fulfillment of migration agreements in force between the two countries, including measures implemented by both parties to face illegal emigration and the smuggling of immigrants, was analyzed.

The Cuban representatives also offered updated information on the implementation of the new migration procedures in Cuba, as well as about migration agreements signed with other nations of the region as part of the island’s policy aimed at regularizing reciprocal migratory movements.

During the discussions held within the framework of migration, the Cuban delegation expressed its willingness to continue exchanges on issues of mutual interest due to their importance for the two countries.
