British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has stepped up his criticism of Kyriakos Mitsotakis, telling the House of Commons that he canceled talks with the Greek leader after he failed to keep "a commitment" not to raise the long-running dispute over the Parthenon marbles. during his trip to London.

Responding to criticism from Keir Starmer, the Labor leader, during Prime Minister's Questions, Sunak said: It was clear that the purpose of the meeting was not to discuss substantive issues for the future, but rather to stand and deal with issues of the past.

The Greeks described the allegation as "absurd", saying that not only would Mitsotakis refuse to be offended on an issue so close to his heart, but that Downing Street was aware, days in advance, of the agenda for the talks, which included Gaza, Ukraine, immigration and climate emergencies.

Greece now says it wants to move on. Asked to comment on Sunak's decision to accelerate the war of words, a senior Greek government official told The Guardian : In the spirit of the long-standing good relations between the countries, which we intend to maintain, we have no to add more to this matter./ CNA
