The United States and Cuba held the second Bilateral Commission in Washington, D.C., today. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Western Hemisphere Affairs Alex Lee led the delegation for the United States, and the Foreign Ministry’s Director General for U.S. Affairs, Josefina Vidal, led the Cuban delegation.

The Bilateral Commission is the primary coordination vehicle for advancing the normalization process between the United States and Cuba. The meeting took place in a respectful, cooperative, and productive environment. It provided an opportunity to review progress on shared priorities, including regulatory issues, telecommunications, claims, environmental protection, human trafficking, human rights, migration, and law enforcement. It also provided an opportunity to discuss priorities for 2016 and to identify mechanisms to continue narrowing our differences.

The United States looks forward to the next Bilateral Commission Meeting in Havana in early 2016.
