Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ statement

I express my annoyance at the fact that the British Prime Minister canceled our scheduled meeting a few hours before it was due to take place.

Greece and Britain are united by traditional ties of friendship and the framework of our bilateral relations is extremely broad.

Greece’s stance on the issue of the Parthenon Sculptures is well known. I had hoped to have the opportunity to discuss them with my British counterpart, along with the major international challenges: Gaza, Ukraine, the climate crisis and migration.

Anyone who believes his stance is right and just is never afraid of opposing arguments.
