PANAMA CITY, PANAMA - The United States and Cuban foreign ministers met in Panama on Thursday night, a US official said, in the highest-level meeting between the two sides since the earliest days of the Cuban revolution more than half a century ago.

The discussions between US Secretary of State John Kerry and Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez marked the first time the two nations' chief diplomats have met since a historic opening by President Barack Obama and his Cuban counterpart, Raul Castro, that was announced on Dec. 17 last year.

The closed-door meeting took place at a Panama City hotel on the eve of a Western Hemisphere summit where Obama and Castro will cross paths. The State Department had said earlier that Kerry and Rodriguez had planned to meet on Thursday.
