ATHENS, Greece (AP) Greece says it will issue a three-year bond following its successful bid to tap debt markets in April after a four-year absence.

A finance ministry statement Wednesday said the bond "is expected to be launched and priced in the near future, subject to market conditions."

Bailed-out Greece regained bond market access in April, four years after it was saved from bankruptcy by an international bailout. The five-year issue raised 3 billion euros ($4.14 billion) with a 4.75 percent coupon.
