New Delhi, April 19, IRNA
India Saturday did not give much credence to the test firing of a ballistic missile by Pakistan saying such tests were regularly required as the technology imported.
Such tests have been happening for ever, Pakistan requires testing of missiles as the technology is flowing in from some other parts of the world.
Therefore, regular testing is required, PTI reported here quoting Navy Chief Admiral Sureesh Mehta.
His comment was sought on the test-firing of the Shaheen-II or Hatf-VI long-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile by Pakistan today.
It is Pakistan's longest range missile with a reach of 2,000 kms and capable of carrying nuclear and conventional warheads.
