British Museum Chair: Exploring Whether There’s a Way to Solve this 200-year-old Dispute

LONDON – The chairperson of the British Museum, George Osborne, stated in the “Diaries” column of the Spectator magazine that the trustees are discussing with the Greeks a way to resolve the 200-year-old dispute regarding the sculptures. Their goal is to make it possible for the sculptures to be displayed both in London and Athens, so that new audiences can appreciate these treasures currently in Greece. While success is not guaranteed, Osborne believes it is worth trying.

Furthermore, he made reference to Boris Johnson’s changing stance, stating, “There must be two Borises,” as Johnson had once written a column expressing his support for returning the Marbles to Greece, saying that “the reasons for handing them back are better still. The Elgin Marbles should leave this northern whisky-drinking guilt culture, and be displayed where they belong: in a country of bright sunlight and the landscape of Achilles, the shadowy mountains, and the echoing sea.”


ATHENS, Greece — Greek police said Tuesday they have arrested two terrorism suspects who had been planning attacks in the country aimed at causing mass casualties.
