Sharp criticism of Prime Minister Sunak in Parthenon dispute – Culture & Entertainment

Athens/London (dpa) – Commentators said that the scandal of the return of art treasures from the British Museum to Greece could harm British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. Media in both countries described Sunak’s last-minute cancellation of a meeting with fellow Greek Kyriakos Mitsotakis as “embarrassing”, “childish” and “unprofessional”.

“It was an unfortunate event,” Mitsotakis said Wednesday. But: “This made Greece’s just demand for the reunification of the Parthenon sculptures better known not only in the UK, but also in world public opinion.”
