US, Cuba fail to ink deal on embassies


WASHINGTON: The United States and Cuba failed Friday to nail down an agreement on reopening their embassies and more discussions to restore long-frozen diplomatic ties will be needed, both sides said. “Both delegations agreed to continue our exchanges on issues related to the functioning of diplomatic missions so we will continue those conversations in the next few weeks,” the head of the Cuban delegation, Josefina Vidal, told reporters after two days of talks. The fourth meeting between the two sides ran into an unscheduled second day on Friday at the State Department in Washington.

“This has not been an easy task given our complicated history,” top US diplomat for Latin America Roberta Jacobson told reporters in a separate press conference.
