Nia Vardalos weighs in on the Mitsotakis-Sunak Scandal - "We would appreciate our stolen Marbles back"

Nia Vardalos

The visit of the Greek Prime Minister to England and the cancellation of the meeting with Rishi Sunak by the British due to the former's references to the stolen marbles of the Parthenon and the subject of their great return, came back to the news.

Among those who took a stand is Nia Vardalos, who, in her way, asks for the return of the marbles to Greece, where they belong.

With a post, the Greek-American actress and producer posted on Instagram a white snapshot in which she wrote: "Dear British Museum, We would appreciate our stolen Marbles back at the Parthenon, where they belong. Thank you ~ Greece *ps I'll come pick them up, I have a big purse."

She added in the image's description: "We have saved a spot at the Acropolis Museum."

Mitsotakis expresses dismay at Sunak's cancellation of their London meeting

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed his dismay that British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak cancelled their scheduled meeting in London "a few hours before it was due", in a statement on Monday evening.

The two leaders were scheduled to meet on Tuesday, as part of Mitsotakis' working visit to the UK. The cancellation came at Sunak's initiative.

Commenting on the move, Mitsotakis said that "Greece and Britain are joined by traditional ties of friendship, and the framework of our bilateral relations is especially broad."

He noted that Greece's stance on the Parthenon Sculptures is well known, adding that he was hoping "to have the opportunity to discuss it with my British counterpart, along with current challenges: Gaza, Ukraine, the climate crisis and migration."

Anyone who believes his stance is right and fair is never afraid of debating, noted Mitsotakis.
