Meanwhile, Cuban leaders are reportedly interested in getting Montes back to Cuba, a former senior US Defense Intelligence Agency analyst convicted in 2002 for spying for the Cuban government for 17 years.
Montes, who was arrested in September 2001, is considered one of the most damaging spies in recent history, because she had access to - and betrayed - U.S. intelligence activities in Cuba.
Investigators said she memorized classified information while working on the job and then typed it on a laptop when she was at her apartment before storing it in coded form on disks, NBC reported.
Montes, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison, then passed the information to her Cuban handlers. She is set to be released in 2023.
While the State Department declined to discuss the details of a possible prisoner exchange, a spokesman told NBC the US is continuing to seek the return of fugitives from US justice from Cuba.
