HAVANA (AP) - A delegation of U.S. telecommunication officials is in Havana to meet with their Cuban counterparts as part of talks to restore full diplomatic relations between the countries.

A Cuban government statement says Daniel Sepulveda, the U.S. coordinator for international communications and information policy, will leave Cuba on Thursday. He has been accompanied by officials from the U.S. State Department, the Federal Communications Commission and Commerce Department.

Wednesday’s statement says that “the Cuban side offered the U.S. visitors information about the country’s information and cybersecurity policy.”

The statement also says the two sides discussed new regulations in Washington for implementing modifications to the U.S. trade embargo with respect to communications.

The U.S. and Cuba are in the middle of talks aimed at restoring diplomatic relations and reopening embassies.
