Denktash admits Turks initiated Cyprus intercommunal violence

Excerpt from UK TV programme, Britain's Grim Legacy, in which Turkish Cypriot terrorists' leader Rauf Denktash admits that Turks initiated the intercommunal violence between Greek Christians and Muslim Turks on the island in the 1950s. Denktash reveals that Turkish Cypriots planted a bomb to provoke the anti-Greek riots of June 1958. The incident which provoked the riots on 7 June was the explosion of a small bomb outside the Turkish Information Office (part of the Turkish consulate) in Nicosia, alleged to have been thrown from a passing car. Even at the time it was suspected that the Turks had planted the bomb to provoke the riots.

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.
