Delivery   Talks in a respectful atmosphere
According to a communique from the Cuban Embassy in the United States, issued in Miami, the agreement was reached Friday to reestablish mail deliveries in the coming weeks as a first step to making direct mail a permanent service in the future.”

The note adds that, after having no such service for more than five decades, the direct mailing of correspondence and packages between Cuba and the United States will begin “soon, when the final technical, operational and security details for its launch are ironed out.”

During the round of talks, which were carried out “in a respectful atmosphere” at an unspecified location, the Cuban delegation gave examples of how the commercial embargo imposed by the U.S. on the Caribbean island affects the “transactions” of the Cuban Post Office Business Group.
