Greek FM hits back at Sunak as he meets Cameron – return of Elgin Marbles is about JUSTICE

Greek Foreign Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis has told media in Brussels today that the re-unification of the Elgin Marbles was a “just and historical claim”.

Speaking at the European Parliament, Gerapetritis said: “As regards my meeting with Secretary Cameron, once again, I would like to say that the Greek government has made a statement concerning the cancellation of the meeting with the Prime Minister Sunak.

“What I have to say is that the re-unification of the Parthenon Sculptures is a claim which is based not only on history, not only on justice, but also it’s a claim of ecumenical cultural values.

“Irrespective of this, it is my understanding that we need to work on a bilateral basis with the United Kingdom, and we’re going to serve this purpose in the future in order to deepen this long standing history we have, the two nations.”
