HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba and the United States have concluded their latest round of talks on restoring diplomatic ties and will continue them in the future, Cuba said on Tuesday without disclosing what may have been agreed.

Assistant U.S. Secretary of State Roberta Jacobson met in Havana on Monday with Josefina Vidal, the Cuban foreign ministry's chief of U.S. affairs, in what had been described as open-ended talks that could last a few days.

The talks ended after just one day, Cuba's foreign ministry said in a statement.

"At the end of the meeting, which took place in a professional climate, the two delegations agreed to maintain communication in the future as part of this process," the statement said.
