WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Roberta Jacobson will travel to Havana on Jan. 21-22 for talks on migration and normalization, the State Department said on Thursday.

Jacobson's trip comes as part of the Obama administration's rapprochement with Cuba that began last month after more than 50 years of a U.S. embargo on the communist nation.
