Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on April 23 ruled out any trade off with Turkey for the release of two Greek soldiers held by Ankara, saying Athens’ NATO ally “appeared to be losing sight of moving closer to Europe.”

“Turkey looks like a country ... at risk of losing its orientation and moving away from its European targets,” Tsipras said.

Tsipras, who was speaking to lawmakers of his Syriza party, said however that he welcomed recent comments by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on the “need and value” of peaceful relations with Greece.

Earlier in the day, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on April 23 rejected Erdoğan’s offer of a “swap deal” involving two Greek soldiers jailed in Turkey in exchange for Turkish soldiers wanted by Ankara over the 2016 failed coup

Turkey on Aug. 10 blasted the Greek defense minister over his remarks against President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on the detention of two Greek soldiers in Turkey.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy in statement said the comments by Panos Kammenos alleging that the soldiers were arrested upon Erdoğan’s instruction reflected "the latest example of irresponsible and unserious conducts of this person."

He reiterated that the soldiers were arrested for illegally crossing the Turkish border, adding that the Greek authorities had been provided necessary information about the ongoing judicial process in the case.
