STAR NEWS, GREECE: A Brexit Deal with the Parthenon Marbles

The timing of the interview was surrounding an article by the British newspaper The Guardian, that the Parthenon Marbles could form a basis for the Greeks to veto Brexit talks.

I explained that although this could hypothetically be the case, indeed the European Union will be the ones advocating such a stance. Under Article 50 of the European Union the Union has a right to protect existing members cultural heritage, and with that have no choice but to assist the Greeks on the possible request should it happen.

I believe that culture knows no borders hence these marbles are part of global culture, and I am happy the British meuseum are helping in ensuring the safety of the marbles. However I also believe in cultural-unification and am of the beliefe someday a cultural exchange in a loan type agreement for the marbles is possible.
