Greece issues note verbale to Germany on war reparations
According to a statement by the ministry, Alternate Foreign Affairs Minister Sia Anagnostopoulou ordered the diplomatic move following parliament approval.
On April 17, the Greek Parliament's plenary ratified a report by the Interparty Parliamentary Committee paving the way for a diplomatic move on the issue.
Greece's claims concern reparations for losses and damage suffered by Greece and its citizens in WWI and II, compensation for the German occupation's victims and their descendants, the repayment of the loan Nazi Germany extracted forcefully from Greece, and the return of looted archaeological treasures, the Greek Foreign Ministry said. ■
