Bubon and Cleveland

Steven Litt has written about Turkey's claims on antiquities in the Cleveland Museum of Art ("Turkey's inquiry into 22 treasures at the Cleveland Museum of Art lacks hard proof of looting", cleveland.com May 27, 2012).

It is clear that the museum was acquiring recently surfaced antiquities in the 1980s (which is why it returned items to Italy). Will the museum contact the Turkish authorities to assist with their attempt to reunite the bronze statues from the sebasteion at Bubon?
