ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he expected more cooperation from Greece in the repatriation of eight soldiers who fled to Greece following a 2016 coup attempt.

Earlier on Tuesday, Turkey updated a list of former military officers wanted for their alleged role in a 2016 coup attempt to include the eight officers who have been granted asylum in Greece, with a bounty of 4 million Turkish lira (595,076.85 pounds) each.

Erdogan made the remarks in a joint news conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
