U.S. Talks With Cuba on Resuming Direct Mail Service

Cuban and U.S. officials will meet in Washington tomorrow and the next day to discuss possible direct mail service between their nations.

The U.S. and Cuba haven’t had direct postal service since 1963, following the communist revolution in Cuba.

“This is something that the U.S. has felt would be a positive step for the Cuban people,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters today. “We felt it was in our interest.”

Talks over mail service were last held in Havana in 2009, and have been on hold for the last few years over detainee issues. The U.S. is demanding that Cuba release jailed American subcontractor Alan Gross, while Cuba wants the U.S. to release Cubans convicted of espionage and serving prison terms in the U.S.

The talks this week, which include representatives of the U.S. Postal Service, will focus on mail delivery and don’t reflect broader policy shifts regarding Cuba, Psaki said during a briefing in Washington.

“It’s not meant to be a signal of anything or indicate a change in policy,” Psaki said.
