Joining Good Morning Britain presenters Susanna Reid and Ed Balls, Kyriakos Mitsotakis spoke on a variety of topics surrounding the actions of Greek policies. When probed by Balls about the Elgin Marbles and how the Prime Minister should be thinking differently about them, Mitsotakis stated they were stolen from their origins, and they didn’t belong in British museums.

Balls introduced the topic and asked the PM: “Our Prime Minister likes his holidays so I’m thinking a Greek trip next year when you meet him.

“He also likes Greek history, I’m sure you’ll be discussing the Elgin marbles is there a chance in persuaded this classicist Prime Minister here in Britain to start thinking in a different way about the Elgin Marbles?”

Mitsotakis explained: “Well he should, he’s a lover of classical sculptures,” however Balls interrupted and asked him why they were here.

“They’re here because they were stolen by Lord Elgin!” Mitsotakis exclaimed to which Balls retaliated: “That’s debated, stolen or legal?”

“But at the end of the day this is not a legal argument, and I don’t like to talk about the return of the marbles.”
