The United States and Cuba concluded on Monday a second round of talks aimed at re-establishing direct mail service between the two countries after a 50-year ban, but left for later the most sensitive issue - Cuban planes landing on US soil.

The Cuban Foreign Ministry said both had agreed to continue the talks in the near future and that Cuba had emphasized "working out the transportation of mail by regular direct routes in both directions" was key to a successful conclusion.

The US State Department said, "The goal of the talks is for the United States and Cuba to work out the details for a pilot program to directly transport mail between the two countries".
