Serbia supports Greece’s request for the reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures exhibited in the British Museum, as stated by the ambassador of the Republic of Serbia in Athens, Dusan Spasojevic, in a post on social media.

“Serbia supports Greece’s request for the return of the Parthenon Sculptures from the British Museum. Greece has and will have the open and unequivocal support of Serbia in this matter in all UN organizations including UNESCO. We believe that this is a cultural issue that should be resolved immediately,” says Mr. Spasojevic.

It is noted that the same position was expressed in 2019 by the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vustic, during his meeting with the Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in Athens.

In the media in Serbia, there is a strong interest in the subject of the Parthenon Sculptures in the British Museum, mainly in the way the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, reacted. to Greece’s request for their return.

In the publications, the cancellation of the meeting with Mr. Mitsotakis by Mr. Sunak is characterized as an “unprecedented event”.

“Tension over Parthenon Sculptures: Sounak at the last minute cancels meeting with Mitsotakis”, “Greece: Britain shows lack of respect regarding return of Sculptures”, “Canceled meeting due to stolen treasures”, are some of the headlines in Serbian press publications.

The issue received a lot of publicity in the media of Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
