Greenland's status is a bit confusing:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland_and_the_European_Union

Greenland left the EU in 1985 an today is associated with the EU as an OCT of Denmark (overseas countries and territories).

Whine if you must.

cheeky putting Brazil and Suriname in there! but surely by that logic you should inlcude Argentina as an answer for example as it borders British Antarctic Territory etc.

French Guiana is actually a part of France and part of the EU, whereas the British Antarctic Territory (and many other overseas territories) is not part of the UK or the EU.

Actually it still doesn't work, as Northern Cyprus is itself legally in the EU (by virtue of the EU recognising it as part of Cyprus).

idk what happened to greenland, though i think it should still count because it is still part of denmark, and greenland also shares a tiny land border with canada so therefore canada should be on this list too

Technically (the Kingdom of) the Netherlands should be on here as well. The French half of Saint Martin is part of the EU as an outermost region (like French Guiana), while the Dutch part (Sint Maarten) is not (it is part of the "Overseas countries and territories" just like Greenland).

Saint Martin is an overseas territory, not an overseas region. So it doesn't count here.
