TREASURIES-U.S. yields remain higher after Fed's Harker, Mester remarks

NEW YORK, April 4 (Reuters) - Yields on shorter-dated U.S. Treasuries held marginally higher on Thursday following remarks from two regional Federal Reserve presidents who suggested the U.S. central bank might raise interest rates later this year if the economy grows in line with their expectations.

At 1:21 p.m. (1721 GMT), two-year Treasury yields were 2.335%, up 0.2 basis point from late on Wednesday. Two-year yields touched a 1-1/2-week high at 2.3430% earlier Thursday. (Reporting by Richard Leong Editing by James Dalgleish)
