Sri Lanka will have to repay the highest ever foreign debt this year, which is 5.9 billion US dollars, a top official of the ministry of finance has told newstube.lk.

Of that amount, 1,000 million USD in lieu of a matured sovereign bond issue made by the Rajapkasa regime in 2014 were repaid today (14), he said.

Another sovereign bond issue for 500 million USD will mature in April, and that payment too, will be met, the official added.
