WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Cuba’s capital Havana will host the 2016 US-Cuba Human Rights Dialogue, US President Barack Obama said in a press conference on Monday following a meeting with Cuban President Raul Castro.

"I’m very pleased that we have agreed to hold our next US-Cuba human rights dialogue here in Havana this year, and both of our countries will welcome visits by independent United Nations experts as we combat human trafficking," Obama stated.

In March 2015, the United States and Cuba held the first planning session in Washington, DC, for a Human Rights Dialogue at which both governments raised issues to pursue.

The Obama administration has reiterated its long-standing policies of supporting universal human rights and support for democratic principles in Cuba as unwavering.

The United States will continue to call out the Cuban government’s violations of human rights and will advocate for the respect of universal human rights, including freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, according to a fact sheet released during Obama’s visit to Cuba.
