WASHINGTON - The United States and Cuba are likely to announce agreements by the end of the year for restoring long-suspended scheduled airline flights and postal service between the two countries, a senior Cuban official said on Tuesday.

The latest signs of progress in the thaw between the two Cold War foes emerged from talks in Washington on normalizing relations following the reestablishment of diplomatic ties in July after more than a half-century of hostility.

"We are very close to the first agreements or arrangements that we could be able to announce in the next few weeks," Josefina Vidal, the Cuban Foreign Ministry's chief of US affairs and head of the Cuban delegation in the talks, told reporters at the Cuban Embassy in Washington.
