Cuban President Raul Castro has met with seven visiting members of the Congressional Black Caucus, his first face-to-face discussions with US officials since he became Cuba's president last year.
Cuba's state television said on Monday night that Castro met with the American lawmakers behind closed doors Monday.
The delegation is in Havana to discuss improving US-Cuba relations amid much speculation that Washington is ready to loosen its 47-year-old trade sanctions against the communist-run island.
