The second round of talks to normalize U.S.- Cuba relations wrapped up Friday without any big announcements or changes.
The meeting was focused pretty squarely on clearing the way for embassies in the two countries — and not on either side's more nuanced policy demands.
In a press conference after the event, Cuba’s representative said the two sides had made progress and that she’s optimistic that in the next few weeks they’ll be close to having a date for the opening of embassies.
