BUENOS AIRES, March 16 (Reuters) - Argentina refinanced $1.5 billion in expiring treasury letters at nominal annual interest rates between 2.65 percent and 3.25 percent, the Finance Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.
That accounted for the bulk of the $1.77 billion in treasury letters that had been scheduled to mature next Monday, the ministry said, adding that it will cancel the remaining $266 million.
The sale included three separate $500 million notes expiring in June, September and December. The ministry said it received orders totaling $3.8 billion.
