Greece’s Parliament Speaker Nikos Voutsis was on Wednesday scheduled to visit the two Greek soldiers that are being detained in Turkey since March after accidentally crossing a borderline between the two countries.

Voutsis, currently in Istanbul for a summit of parliament speakers, was expected to arrive at Edirne prison at 5 p.m.

A conservative MEP, Manolis Kefalogiannis, visited the two soldiers earlier this week as the head of a European Parliament delegation visiting Turkey.
