  • [01] Venizelos: Repatriation of Parthenon Marbles an ongoing struggle

    ANA/MPA---"We will not stop until the Parthenon marbles return to Greece where they belong", the chairman of the International Association for the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles David Hill said on Thursday after a meeting with government Vice-President and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos.

    "David Hill is a true pillar of the effort we are making to return the Parthenon Sculptures, the Marbles, now that we have the great endeavor of the new Museum, now that awareness has again been raised in international public opinion on this pending issue," Venizelos said.

    "This is an ongoing struggle. We have been doing this for years with Hill – for more than 20 years now – and I really want to thank him, on behalf of the Greek state, for his dedication to such an important global cause," he added.

    On his part, Hill said he was grateful to meet up again with Venizelos, who has been a "champion" of the cause for the return of the Parthenon sculptures. "And on behalf of all the international association, Greece is not alone – there are now 16 countries with organizations that are supporting Greece for the return of the marmara and we will not stop; we will not stop until the marbles are back in Greece where they belong," he noted.
