The minority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives and a delegation of fellow Democrats have met with Cuban Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel, the man currently expected to take power after President Raul Castro leaves office in 2018.

Cuban state media say Rep. Nancy Pelosi and eight colleagues on Thursday discussed Cuban economic reforms, U.S-Cuba relations and congressional efforts to lift the U.S. trade embargo on Cuba. A spokesman for Pelosi says her office has no immediate comment on the meeting.
