Amid conflicting reports in recent months, is there a way for British Museum officials and the Greek authorities to strike a deal that will be mutually beneficial?
The return of three sculpture fragments is hoped to put pressure on the British Museum for the repatriation of its larger collection of marbles.
The British Museum chair George Osborne wants to find a way for the Parthenon Sculptures to be shown in both Greece and England.
According to the report, the Greek PM and the British Museum chair have been discussing a loan arrangement for the Parthenon Marbles since 2021.
While reports in the UK media claim a deal might have already been struck, both Greek and British officials now state that discussions are in fact ongoing.
Pope Francis has approved the return of three fragments of the Parthenon’s decorative sculptures, held in the Vatican Museums since the 19th century.
Following “secret meetings” between the Greek PM and the current chair of the British Museum, an agreement is “90 percent complete,” according to a new report.
