Top US senator visits Cuba
(AFP)

WASHINGTON — A top US senator, Senate Banking Committee chairman Christopher Dodd, is in Cuba for talks with officials there on how to improve relations between the former Cold War foes, his office said Monday.

Dodd, who also chairs the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, has been a frequent vocal critic of the US trade against Cuba, spokesman Bryan DeAngelis said in a statement.

The lawmaker, who earlier this year announced he would not seek reelection, was a lead author of legislation to lift the effective ban on by US citizens to Cuba. The measure is stalled in the US Senate.

Dodd represents the state of Connecticut.
