Greene to rivals: Let's sort feud on the track
Jackson claims that Greene said his American rivals were "overrated" - which the Brit denies - while Taylor has also taken a swipe, saying Greene's World Championship-winning time last year was "very slow".
The war of words has been an engrossing sub-plot ahead of the Games, but Greene is keen to ensure that the verbal jousting goes no further.
"The Americans are talking as if I was slagging them off," Greene said in the Daily Mail. "I stand for high morals in sport. So I can't be seen to be criticising them for no reason.
"No, I don't go out for a drink with them and, yes, I am fiercely competitive. I look forward to racing them and I'll be aiming to beat them, as I always aim to do, and as I managed at the Worlds last year.
"But I acknowledge they have been the outstanding nation in my event for years and I wouldn't disrespect them. I am not blasé about that. I do not overlook the fact.
"In no interview have I said anything different. I just said after Daegu that it was a change not to see the Americans on the podium - not that they were overrated. But the story I disrespected them is out there and I wanted to pick up on it to stop it."
