Greek PM to hold debt crisis talks with Eurogroup chief

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou will hold talks on his country’s debt crisis with the head of eurozone finance ministers in Luxembourg on Friday.

Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the Eurogroup, will host Papandreou for a “working visit” focused on “the financial and budgetary situation in Greece,” Juncker’s office said.

The meeting comes amid growing expectations that the European Union will provide new aid to Greece as the eurozone struggles to fix its finances despite a 110-billion-euro joint-IMF bailout agreed with Athens last year.
