WASHINGTON - The United States plans to open an embassy in Havana, a US official said on Wednesday before President Barack Obama's expected announcement on a policy shift with Cuba.

The United States currently has an interests section in Havana.

US congressional officials reported Obama's changes are likely to include relaxed travel restrictions and expanded trade. CNN reported Obama plans to announce the resumption of US-Cuba banking and an increase in allowed remittances.
