(Reuters) - Greece urged Turkey on Tuesday to release two soldiers detained last month after crossing into Turkish territory, expressing concern over what it said were 'intensifying provocations' from Ankara.

"Of late it has intensified its provocations and is escalating the situation on all fronts," Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told a meeting of his cabinet.
