Faint signs of movement in the U.S.-Cuba grudge match

Ricardo Alarcon

Cuban officials are studying "with great interest" an Obama administration proposal to renew migration talks with Cuba, said Ricardo Alarcon, president of Cuba's National Assembly.
Regular meetings to discuss migration issues would at least open a new channel of communication between the two countries, at odds for most of the past half century. And that can't hurt.
But Cuba and the United States remain light years apart on many key issues, including human rights, politics and freedom of expression.

Havana Note post on suspicions that the Obama administration is not pursuing migration talks with great enthusiasm.
