ANKARA (AA) - Turkey's Treasury will repay debts worth 57.8 billion Turkish liras ($10.23 billion) in October-December, the Treasury and Finance Ministry announced on Monday.
Including 5.9 billion Turkish liras ($1.04 billion) in interest payments, the Treasury will repay 17 billion Turkish liras ($3 billion) in external debts.
Over the next three months, 40.8 billion liras ($7.22 billion) of domestic debt redemption is also projected -- around 32% of this amount will be interest payments, while the rest will be principal payment.
According to the ministry's borrowing strategy, the Treasury will borrow 38.9 billion Turkish liras ($6.88 billion) from domestic markets in the next three months.
The Treasury has projected to hold 12 bond auctions and a direct sale of lease certificates -- no planned external borrowing -- in October-December.
