Mogherini calls for ‘swift and positive outcome’ on arrest of Greek soldiers

The EU’s foreign policy chief called on Turkey on Tuesday to provide a “swift and positive” outcome on the issue of the two Greek soldiers who have been detained in Edirne after straying accidently into Turkish territory during a border patrol last week.

Speaking after a meeting of EU defense ministers in Brussels, Federica Mogherini expressed EU solidarity towards Greece, adding she and the bloc’s defence ministers were briefed by Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos on the situation.
