Turkey's Treasury will repay debts worth 86.5 billion Turkish liras (some $13.1 billion) in the April-June period, the Treasury and Finance Ministry announced on Tuesday.   

The Treasury will repay 35.1 billion Turkish liras ($5.3 billion) in external debts, including 6.8 billion Turkish liras ($1.03 billion) in interest payments. 

For the next three months, 51.5 billion Turkish liras ($7.8 billion) of domestic debt redemption is also projected -- with around 23.9 billion Turkish liras ($3.6 billion) of this amount in interest payments, while the rest will be principal payment. 

According to the ministry's borrowing strategy, the Treasury will borrow 82 billion Turkish liras ($12.4 billion) from domestic markets in the next three months. 

The Treasury has projected to hold 23 bond auctions and direct sale of lease certificates -- no planned external borrowing -- in April-June.
