    Greek leader Papadopulos, currently on bad terms with Britain because of their support of Turkey’s action plan, is now commonly referred to as Don Quixote (who fights against windmills) in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). In protest against Britain’s decision to recognise the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Greece has put in a veto regarding Turkey’s accession to the European Union. Greece will neither hold meetings with the USA, who are in support of Britain’s decision.

    Greek Cypriot leader, Tasos Papadopulos, who is has declared diplomatic war against the United Kingdom for their decision to ‘recognise the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), has stated that he will ‘boycott’ US Foreign Affairs Vice-Undersecretary Mathew Bryza, who is set to visit the Island in one month’s time, in the same way as he has done with British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw. The Greek administration, officially protesting the United Kingdom for it’s acknowledgement of the TRNC, has stated that “the United Kingdom must stop acting as a go-between”.

    The uproar caused by British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw’s words, “if Papadopulos continues to behave in such a way, the TRNC will be recognised; we would not take Greece into the European Union, were the decision to be made today” still continues in the Greek Administration.
