– The issue remains open until our demands are met. These claims are valid and active and will be pursued by all means, said Aleksandros Papaioannou, spokesman for the Greek Foreign Ministry.

In June 2019, the government led by Prime Minister Aleksis Cipras asked Germany to negotiate reparations for damages in World War I and II. In October, this request was rejected by the German side. The government of today’s conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Micotakis confirmed in a diplomatic note in January 2020 that the question of reparations is open to Greece.
