LIZ Truss has added another glorious chapter to her storied career as Foreign Secretary after seemingly confusing her Greek counterpart for a pop star.

The Tory minister met with foreign minister Nikos Dendias in London on Monday.

According to a post on Truss’s Facebook page, the pair were “united in condemning Putin’s barbaric invasion of Ukraine”.

The Conservative Cabinet member also paid tribute to ethnic Greeks who have been killed in the conflict.

Social media users couldn’t help but notice, however, that instead of tagging her counterpart Dendias, Truss’s team had accidentally named renowned Greek Singer, Nikos Vertis.

The Tory minister’s team quickly corrected the error, but it was too late.

“It's Mr Dendias, not Mr Vertis as initially tagged,” one person replied. “Great to see this post.”

Journalist Konstantinos Lianos wrote on Twitter: “UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss mistook Greek Foreign Secretary Nikos Dendias with singer Nikos Vertis.

“That happened in a post about the deaths of ethnic Greeks in Ukraine.

“Not at all shocked from this shambolic Tory government which has been totally out of touch since 2016.”

Following the meeting, Dendias posted: “Ι met with UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss to exchange views on the security situation in Europe following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, review developments in the Western Balkans, Eastern Mediterranean, as well as bilateral issues.”

An article in the Spectator rather crassly claimed last month that Truss “is having a good war”.

They may want to reassess that opinion.
