According to Cuba's Foreign Ministry, the two sides "discussed issues related to the current context of ties between the two countries, including restoring diplomatic relations, opening embassies and the debate in Congress on lifting the blockade against Cuba." A statement released on Tuesday by Pelosi's office said the delegation would "work to advance the relationship between the United States and Cuba," based on many efforts of other colleagues in Congress, "especially in the areas of agriculture and trade." As schedule, the second round of negotiation on normalization of bilateral ties will be held in Washington on February 27th.
