Greek President thanks Kerry Kennedy for support to return of Elgin Marbles

The President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos underlined the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation's significant actions for the protection of human rights, as well as Kerry Kennedy's full and active support of Greece's efforts for the return of the Parthenon Marbles to the Acropolis Museum, during their meeting at the presidential mansion on Monday, ANA reports. Referring to Kennedy's stance on the return of the Parthenon sculptures, he noted that her support went far beyond the boundaries of Greece, pointing out that the return of the Parthenon Marbles to their home was imposed primarily by the principles and the values of the common culture, which were brutally assailed by the British Museum's insistence on covering up Elgin's barbaric cultural "grave-robbery" and theft more than two centuries ago.
