The white House has requested Cuba to renew the conversations on the immigration suspended in 2003
President Obama's administration has taken another step towards improving relations with the Cuban regime of Raul Castro. The White House has asked Cuba to resume talks on legal immigration of Cubans that former President Bush suspended in 2003.

The move to restart the talks was made by the State Department on Friday. State Department officials said the talks would focus on "safe and orderly migration" by Cubans to the United States, according to the Associated Press.

The olive branch is the second move this year by the Obama administration to ease the hard feelings between the United States government and that of the communist government in Cuba. In April, Obama lifted restrictions on travel to Cuba by Americans with families there. He also lifted the restrictions on the amount of money Americans can send their Cuban relatives.
