    1996 may indeed be the year of the "big push" in Cyprus, as talks to bring both sides to the table have been introduced to Congress by U.S. President Bill Clinton.

    The american president is recommending to Congress that the European Union enact conversations between the turkish and greek communities of Cyprus in order to clarify what the inclusion of Cyprus in the Union will mean.

    Mr. Clinton's recommendation is part of a bi- monthly report on the cypriot issue for the months of October and November.

    In his letter, the american president refers to the U.S. presidential envoy Richard Beattie s oncoming visit to Cyprus in December, stating that the visit reflects his interest in the empowerment of the american efforts to proceed into finding a firm solution.

    Presidential envoys have continued their talks with European Union officials where it is recommended that the Union meets with both communities regularly.

    Similar dialogues, Clinton refers in his letter to Congress, will encourage both parts to utilize the time prior to the inclusion negotiations for the formation of a two-zone, two-community federation.
