A top State Department official says Cuba has agreed to resume negotiations with the U.S. over immigration and mail service between the two countries. The official says Cuba notified the U.S. on Saturday that it had accepted a recent U.S. overture to restart the talks. The official also says Cuba expressed a willingness to cooperate with the U.S.

on fighting terrorism and drug trafficking, and on hurricane disaster preparedness.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the time and place for the resumed talks has not been determined.

The official spoke to reporters Sunday just before Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton left on a trip to El Salvador and Honduras.

She plans to attend a meeting Tuesday in Honduras where Cuba's possible readmission to the Organization of American States is expected to be discussed.
