One of the main issues in the agenda of the 22nd Session of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Commission for the Return of Cultural Property to the Countries of Origin (ICPRCP) was the Return of the Parthenon Sculptures from the British Museum.

For the first time this year, the Commission unanimously voted for an additional text which is a Decision (Decision 22 COM 17) exclusively aimed for the return of the Parthenon Sculptures!

The Minister of Culture and Sports Lina Mendoni, after the 22nd Intergovernmental Committee, underlined: “Greece succeeded an Intergovernmental Commission Decision specifically concerning about the return of Parthenon Sculptures. The Commission urges the United Kingdom to reconsider its stance and to negotiate with Greece, acknowledging that the matter is intergovernmental and in particular Greece’s request for the return of the sculptures is fair and legal”.
