HAVANA (AP) - U.S. and Cuban representatives are discussing the possibility of re-establishing direct mail service during talks in Havana.
The American delegation is being led by Lea Emerson, executive director for international postal affairs at the U.S. Postal Service. The delegation also includes State Department officials.
They are meeting with counterparts from Cuba's postal agency and Foreign Ministry.
The goal is to hammer out details of a pilot program to directly transport mail between the two countries after a five-decade hiatus.
The meeting follows similar negotiations in Washington in June.
The Cold War rivals also held migration discussions in July.
According to U.S. State Department press guidance, the talks began Monday morning and were continuing in the afternoon.
