Over the next three months, the Treasury will repay 14.2 billion Turkish liras (some $1.82 billion) in external debt, of which 7.3 billion Turkish liras ($940 million) will be interest payments.
For the next three months, 97.6 billion Turkish liras ($12.5 billion) of domestic debt redemption is also projected – with around 30.3 billion Turkish liras ($3.88 billion) of this amount in interest payments, while the rest is principal payment.
