Only then will the Cyprus problem be solved!

"A decades old dispute solved by July next year because Turkey says so? It's not going to happen. Once Turkey removes the illegal mainland settlers that now call themselves 'Turkish Cypriots', the 30000 illegal Turkish troops on the island, abides by international law and UN resolutions, recognizes Cyprus for what it is, an independent sovereign entity/EU member state and compensate the tens of thousands of people that had their land stolen from them. Then and only then will the Cyprus 'problem' be solved. No country will break international law for the sake of Turkey, so no country will recognise the puppet regime in the north of Cyprus. All in all Turkey's handling of the Cyprus issue for the last few decades has been as farcical and ridiculous as its EU membership bid. One last thing, the Turkish press loves waffling on how the Annan plan was turned down by the Republic of Cyprus but always fail to mention that Turkey (let's not pretend the 'government' of north Cyprus are independant) has turned down the previous THREE UN sponsored solutions. July 2012 should be a very interesting time for Turkey-EU relations."

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.
