Cuba and United States resume talks on postal service

REPRESENTATIVES from Cuba and the United States resumed talks on the postal service between the two countries this June 18-19. The Cuban delegation was headed by José Ramón Cabañas Rodríguez, head of the Cuban Interests Section in Washington, and the U.S. delegation by Lea Emerson, director of international postal affairs at the U.S. Postal Service.

The Cuban delegation presented a report on the current situation of the postal service between Cuba and the United States, as well as proposals to solve difficulties existing in the sector. Aspects to be taken into account to reestablish the direct service between the two countries were also reiterated.

The Cuban side stated that it was satisfied with the talks between officials of the respective postal departments, describing them as useful in relation to their objective of identifying ways of solving the difficulties affecting the normalization of postal exchange between the two countries.

During the talks, the Cuban delegation emphasized that it will not be possible to implement a stable, quality and secure postal service on the basis of principles and standards established by the Universal Postal Union, of which both countries are members, until obstacles derived from the blockade policy imposed on Cuba by the United States government are overcome.

The Cuban delegation also included Jorge Luis Oliva Martín, director of Cooperation and International Ministries of Communication Agencies, and Carlos Asencio Valerino, president of the Correos de Cuba Enterprise Group.
