    INTRO: THE UNITED STATES SAYS THE EUROPEAN UNION SHOULD KEEP THE DOOR OPEN TO FUTURE MEMBERSHIP FOR CYPRUS AND TURKEY DESPITE SHARP DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN THE TURKISH AND GREEK CYPRIOT LEADERS. V-O-A'S VICTOR BEATTIE REPORTS WASHINGTON VIEWS THE JUST-CONCLUDED SECOND ROUND OF U-N/SPONSORED TALKS TO RESOLVE THE MEDITERRANEAN ISLAND'S DIVISION AS USEFUL:

    TEXT: STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN JAMES RUBIN NOTED THE SWISS-BASED TALKS RESULTED IN A GOAL BY BOTH GREEK AND TURKISH CYPRIOTS OF A BI-ZONAL AND BI-COMMUNAL FEDERATION. MR. RUBIN, IN DESCRIBING THE TALKS AS USEFUL SAYS BOTH SIDES ALSO AGREED ON FUTURE HUMANITARIAN TALKS:

    ///RUBIN ACTUALITY///

    THIS IS A LONG-RUNNING DISPUTE. THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT PASSIONS AND EMOTIONS ON BOTH SIDES AND WE DON'T EXPECT THESE KINDS OF PROBLEMS TO SOLVED EASILY.

    ///END ACTUALITY///

    THE SPOKESMAN SAYS WASHINGTON BELIEVES THE EUROPEAN UNION SHOULD EXTEND MEMBERSHIP TO BOTH TURKEY AND CYPRUS:

    ///RUBIN ACTUALITY///

    AND, WE BELIEVE THAT THE E-U ACCESSION PROCESS PROVIDES INCENTIVES FOR THE CONCERNED PARTIES TO MOVE AHEAD TO ACHIEVE A JUST AND VIABLE SETTLEMENT TO THIS CYPRUS DISPUTE.

    ///END ACTUALITY///

    TURKEY'S CYPRIOT LEADER RAUF DENKTASH INSISTS A RESOLUTION OF THE CYPRUS QUESTION MUST PRECEDE E-U MEMBERSHP WHILE GREEK CYPRIOT LEADER GLAFCOS CLERIDES SAYS ANY SUCH DELAY IN MEMBERSHIP WILL SCUTTLE THE TALKS.

    U-S ENVOY RICHARD HOLBROOKE IS EXPECTED TO ENTER THE NEGOTIATIONS LATER THIS YEAR. (SIGNED).
