Cuba and US officials resume dialogue on law enforcement

Cuba: From 18-19 January, representatives of the US and Cuban governments met in Cuba’s capital, Havana, to discuss “topics of bilateral interest on law enforcement matters” under the ‘US-Cuba Law Enforcement Dialogue’, according to a US State Department press release. The same source highlights that these discussions marked the first Law Enforcement Dialogue between the two countries since 2018 when they were suspended under former US president Donald Trump (2017-2021). The US delegation included representatives from the Departments of State, Homeland Security, and Justice, while the Cuban delegation was comprised of representatives from the ministries of foreign affairs and the interior, the attorney general’s office, and customs authorities. According to Cuba’s foreign ministry, the two sides discussed bilateral cooperation to cope with matters such as “terrorism, human smuggling and migration fraud”, among others. The US State Department was clear that “this dialogue does not impact the administration’s continued focus on critical human rights issues in Cuba”, which remains “central to [their] engagement”.
