U.S. and Cuban officials have held another round of talks on migration issues in Havana, with no new agreements announced.

A Cuban Foreign Ministry statement says its delegation again complained about U.S. rules that let islanders who reach American soil stay, and also a U.S. policy of granting entry to Cuban medical professionals on overseas missions.

The ministry says the policies encourage Cubans to make risky sea voyages and also feeds crimes such as people smuggling and migration fraud. It argues that the doctors program hurts health programs of third countries where they are working.

Thursday's statement said both sides acknowledged "positive results" of two meetings held earlier this year in Miami.
