British FM Liz Truss tagged a Greek singer instead of Greek Foreign Minister

The Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, had a meeting with his British counterpart Liz Truss on Monday which resulted also to a funny mistake.

The Greek Foreign Minister announced via Twitter that they exchanged views with the British Foreign Secretary on the security situation in Europe after the Russian invasion of Ukraine and discussed developments in the Western Balkans, the Eastern Mediterranean and bilateral relations.

Liz Truss, in a post on her account, stated that Greece and the United Kingdom jointly condemn the “barbaric”, as the British Foreign Secretary reports, Putin’s attack on Ukraine and isolate Russia on the international stage.

In addition, the Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom Liz Truss, according to her post, expressed her condolences to “Nikos Vertis” for the loss of Greek expatriates in Ukraine and agreed to rally their partners against Russia, as the minister was probably confused and instead of the Greek Minister Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, tagged the famous Greek singer Nikos Vertis.

Later, when the error was noticed, the post was corrected.

Recall that a month ago Liz Truss in a meeting with her Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov had made a less funny mistake, confusing the Russian regions of Voronezh and Rostov.

When the British Foreign Secretary asked for the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Russian-Ukrainian border, Sergey Lavrov replied that they were on Russian soil and she herself replied that they are not.

The Russian minister then asked her if she recognized Russian sovereignty in Voronezh and Rostov, with Truss saying she would never recognize Russian sovereignty in those areas.
