The U.S.-Cuba talks, held since Friday, seemed no closer to solving the refugee crisis despite a U.S. offer to admit more than 20,000 Cubans a year. A 45-minute meeting today reportedly contained an undisclosed Cuban response, and the two sides are to resume talks Wednesday morning. In Madrid, Cuba's Foreign Minister Roberto Robaina denied reports that Cuba would only be satisfied with a whopping 100,000 immigration ceiling. Meanwhile, 100 Cuban refugees in the Guantanamo Naval base volunteered to be moved out of the camp and put aboard planes for Panama, which has agreed to accept several thousand Cubans.
