  • [01] Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis visits Ancient Agora in Athens

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis visited the Ancient Agora in Athens during the weekend, accompanied by Culture Minister George Voulgarakis and culture ministry Secretary General Christos Zachopoulos.

    Speaking after his visit, Karamanlis said that antiquities dating back to the 5th century, and related to the wider region of the Acropolis, have been returned to Greece a few weeks ago and are on display in the Attalos Arcade.

    "Day after day, the serious and methodical effort aimed at claiming and repatriating elements of our cultural heritage, that are in foreign museums or in private colllections, is producing and will continue to produce tangible results," the prime minister said.

    "And, of course, the reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures remains the great goal. I am confident that the new Acropolis Museum, work for whose completion is now going on with a speedy pace, will add new and very strong arguments to this effort," Karamanlis added.

    The premier is due to meet on Monday with Russian Federation First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov and Cyprus House of Representatives Speaker Demetris Christofias.

    Psarouda-Benaki, who arrived in Santiago on Saturday at the invitation of her Chilean counterpart Patricio Walker Prieto, visited the northern Chile city of Antofagasta on Sunday, on the first stop of her tour, and was due to meet with local authorities and members of the Greek community.

    During her visit, Psarouda Benaki will address a plenary session of the Chilean Parliament and have meetings with Chilean Republic President Veronica Michelle Bachelet, Senate President Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle, Foreign Minister Alejandro Foxley, the UDI and RN party presidents, Isabel Allende, daughter of the late former Chilean President Salvador Allende, and representatives of the Greek community in Chile.
