ATHENS, Greece — Prime Minister Lucas Papademos is on his way to Brussels a day ahead of a crucial Eurozone finance ministers' meeting that will discuss a €130 billion ($170-billion) bailout for Greece.
Papademos had not been expected to attend the summit. His office told The Associated Press they were not aware of any scheduled meetings Sunday and that they will share his Monday schedule later.
Papademos' government is expected Monday to introduce in Parliament two pieces of emergency legislation seen as crucial in convincing Greece's creditors of the government's willingness to see reforms through quickly.
The legislation, which includes wage and pension cuts and a supplement to the 2012 budget making €3.2 billion in cuts, is expected to be debated in committee Tuesday and submitted to a vote Wednesday.
