United States First Lady Hillary Clinton and Senatorial hopeful on Monday "addressed" via a videotaped message the international conference on the Parthenon Marbles, taking place at Zappeion Hall in Athens.
"My husband has expressed his wish for the Marbles to return to their home. I wish that the conference will be able to aid in the return of the Parthenon Sculptures," she noted in her message.
The conference entitled "The claim on the Sculptures of the Parthenon in the framework of the European Union: Historical, Cultural, Legal approach", is organized by the Ioannis Kapodistrias Center of European Studies and is under the auspices of the culture ministry, the press and media ministry and the Greek national committee of UNESCO.
