Greece will continue to demand the return of the Parthenon Sculptures to Athens and their reunification with the Parthenon, said the Greek Culture Minister, Lina Mendoni, today, Friday, responding to recent comments by her British counterpart that returning the sculptures would “open a can of worms.”
 
On Monday, Donelan told the BBC that the sculptures “belong here in the UK” and should not be returned to Greece.
 
Reports have suggested the museum’s chairman, George Osborne, is close to agreeing a deal with Greece but Donelan said that permanently returning them was “not his intention.”
