The president of Greece, Pavlo Pross, said in a statement that it was unacceptable to confuse any Greek soldiers and citizens of Turkey to seek political asylum in Greece in accordance with international law to Greece, which means to ignore international law and international obligations. He said that friendship and good neighborly relations were not respected in the case of Greek soldiers being detained, and the proposal made by President El, President of Turkey, was unacceptable. Greek Prime Minister Tsipras also issued a statement on 22, rejected Turkeys proposal. He said the position of Greece and the European Union is clear, that is, the return of the two Greek soldiers is not accompanied by any unacceptable prerequisites. Two Greek soldiers crossed the border into Turkey in March 1st. They were detained by the mainland and subsequently charged with trying to engage in espionage activities. The Greek government said two soldiers had been in Turkey due to bad weather. The two soldiers are currently detained in the delta of Northwestern Turkey. Tsipras earlier this month ordered the Turkish side to release the two soldiers. In an interview with a television station in Turkey, El, President of Turkey, said in an interview on a television station in Turkey on 21 days that the Greek government would have to extradite Turkey soldiers who participated in the attempted coup in 2016 if the government wanted to release two Greek soldiers. The Greek Supreme Court rejected Turkeys request for extradition last year. The Greek side believes that if those soldiers return to China, they will face unfair judicial decisions.
