To federate or not to federate?

Hillary Clinton on Nov 1st: ''The United States supports the UN’'s mediation on the Cyprus issue, and we believe that public rhetoric on all sides must be kept to a minimum to give the parties space needed to achieve a solution ... all parties agree on the fundamental goal of achieving a lasting settlement on the island that results in a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation''

Hüseyin Özgürgün on Nov 7th: “Our attitude is clear on this issue, a solution based on two equal states, and this is in line with the U.N.’s approach to the Cyprus issue” Turkish Cypriot "Foreign Minister" Hüseyin Özgürgün said transforming the island of Cyprus into a federation was not an acceptable solution to the Cyprus dispute. - ‘Federation is unaccepetable’ | Hurriyet Daily News Nov 7 2011

May tCypriot puppets stay loyal to their master to the very end. If they do, Hillary will be the first to declare what I have been saying all along: all we have is the Republic of Cyprus in Cyprus, and a minor challenge of how to integrate a few dozen thousand tCypriots back into things. Turkey already knows she is out!

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.
