Mitsotakis calls on Johnson to return the Parthenon marbles to Athens in 2021

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in an interview with Observer newspaper that he is willing to allow ancient treasures to be exhibited in London in exchange for the Parthenon Marbles being returned to Athens for 2021.

 

“Of course our demand for the return of the sculptures remains in place,” said Mitsotakis. “I don’t think [Britain] should be fighting a losing battle. Eventually this is going to be a losing battle. At the end of the day there is going to be mounting pressure on this issue.”
