I wonder what will come out of the Geneva Jan 26th meeting

Demetris Christofias and Derviş Eroğlu will go to the January 26th 2011 meeting with the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in Geneva not knowing what is in store.

Antifon wonders  "Perhaps too difficult a concept for humans to grasp!"

Antifon wonders "Hmm .... how come they don't see the obvious. Turkey has two problems with minorities. One at home and one in another country she ostensibly has obligations to (along with Greece and the UK). 

Give Turkey's Kurds (25% of population) identical rights to those agreed for the T-Cypriots (18%) in Cyprus & vice versa. A federation in Cyprus between GCs & TCs and a federation in Turkey between its Turkish ethnic majority and Kurdish ethnic minority. Or unitary state solutions with similar levels of rights based on same principles. Is it so hard for humans to grasp?"

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
