Turkey detains 2 Greek soldiers over illegal entering

(MENAFN) After being detained in Turkey on charges of espionage and illegal entering the country in early March, a Turkish court on Tuesday ruled against the release of two Greek soldiers.

Greece says adverse weather conditions disorientated both men near the Greek-Turkish border.
Semi-official Anadolu Agency said that the court had ruled there was enough evidence to fear that the two men would flee if granted bail.

The European Union has put pressure on Turkey to return the soldiers to Greece since their arrest on March 2.

At an EU meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Bulgaria on Monday, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the bloc was confident Ankara would "solve that [the soldiers' release] in the best way."
