In a resolution passed on Friday, the Cyprus House of Representatives urged the U.K. government to put pressure on the British Museum to return the Parthenon Marbles to Greece.
The Cypriot Parliament said it was "joining its voice with those of the Parliaments of other countries and the European Parliament" to demand the sculptures' return and reunification with the scarred monument.
It also called on all countries, particularly European states, to support Greece's efforts for the return of the Parthenon Marbles, noting that it was a move that could mark the beginning for the return of "other cultural monuments to the states to which they belong".
