Greece: new measures to be voted on next month

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Greece's finance minister says parliament will vote on the latest austerity reforms by the end of October.
Faced with mounting anger from the country's international creditors, the government recently announced a raft of new austerity measures to secure the installment.
Evangelos Venizelos says the country will receive the next batch of bailout loans in time to avoid a potentially disastrous default.
He says the country's international creditors were aware of Greece's fiscal situation and that the next batch of loans, worth $10.8 billion, will arrive "in time." Greece has said in the past it has enough funds to last it until mid-October.
