ROBIN COOK IN FAVOR OF THE RETURN OF THE PARTHENON MARBLES
London, 14 January 2004 (16:56 UTC+2)
British former Foreign Secretary Robin Cook in an article signed by him and published on London’s newspaper “Evening Standard” calls on the British government to return the Parthenon Marbles to Greece.
The article is published in view of the opinion poll publicized today according to which, 80% of the British agree with the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece.
He mentions that the return of the Marbles will restore the unity of the major cultural monument of the Parthenon at the Acropolis in Athens, adding that by refusing to return the Marbles London’s bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games will be undermined.
