Cypriot President is on his way to Brussels as his country continues to seek a last-minute deal to avoid possible bankruptcy.


The trip comes after a day of talks between Cyprus and the EU and IMF.


Cyprus needs to raise 5.8 billion euros to qualify for a 10 billion-euro EU bailout.


The EU's commissioner for economic affairs said the island had only "hard choices left" and must agree terms today.
