Havana: Cuba and the US will hold talks here next week on normalizing their ties, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Josefina Vidal Ferreiro, head of the ministry`s US affairs section, would lead the Cuban delegation, added the statement issued Friday.

On Jan 21, the topic would be immigration and on the following day the two sides would discuss the principles and steps for the re-establishment of diplomatic ties, and the opening of embassies.

Last month, US President Barack Obama and Cuban leader Raul Castro expressed their intentions to normalise relations, which were severed half-a-century ago.
