The U.S. State Department has announced that representatives from the governments of the United States and Cuba will meet in Havana on January 12 to hold the fourth round of migration talks. According to the U.S. State Department, these talks provide an opportunity "to discuss policies and procedures that promote safe, legal orderly migration." In the past, the talks have also given these two governments the opportunity to explore other related issues of mutual concern. This author hopes these talks will continue to provide a forum for these governments to find areas of cooperation and improved relations.
