SEOUL, May 26 (Yonhap) -- South Korea plans to sell 12 trillion won (US$9.5 billion) in government bonds next month, the finance ministry said Thursday.

The ministry will issue 1 trillion won in Treasurys with a two-year maturity, 2.2 trillion won in Treasury bonds with a maturity of three years and 2.1 trillion won in five-year government bonds, according to the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

The sales of longer-dated bonds will include 3.5 trillion won in 30-year Treasury notes and 300 billion won in state debts with a maturity of 50 years.

South Korea issued 17.5 trillion won in state bonds in May.

The debt sale was mainly aimed at financing fiscal spending in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
