ATHENS – President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos stressed the Robert F. Kennedy Foundation’s significant actions for the protection of human rights, as well as Kerry Kennedy’s full and active support of Greece’s efforts for the return of the Parthenon Marbles to the Acropolis Museum, during their meeting at the presidential mansion on Monday.

Referring to Kennedy’s stance on the return of the Parthenon sculptures, he noted that her support went far beyond the boundaries of Greece, stressing that the return of the Parthenon Marbles to their home was imposed primarily by the principles and the values of the common culture, which were brutally assailed by the British Museum’s insistence on covering up Elgin’s barbaric cultural “grave-robbery” and theft more than two centuries ago.

On her part, Kennedy thanked the president for meeting her and underlined that the Parthenon sculptures were a cultural heritage that had to be reunited and brought back to their place of origin, in Greece, so that both the Greeks and tourists can view them in their natural environment.

After referring to the links that unite Greece and its culture with the Kennedy family, the President of the “ELPIDA” Association, Marianna Vardinoyannis stressed the importance of Kerry Kennedy’s contribution to Greece’s efforts for the return of the Parthenon Sculptures.
