Pakistan has test fired a surface-to-surface ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear and conventional warheads to a distance of 2,750 kilometers, the Pakistani Army’s Directorate of Inter-Services-Intelligence (ISI) Public Relations announced in its statement on Monday.
Pakistan media has claimed that most Indian Cities fall under the range of the missile. Shaheen-III's test launch was aimed at validating various design and technical parameters of the weapon system at maximum range.
Pakistan Army said, "The successful launch, with its impact point in the Arabian Sea, was witnessed by senior officers from Strategic Plans Division, strategic forces, scientists and engineers of strategic organisations".
Last month Pakistan had conducted another missile test with the launch of a low-flying cruise missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead up to 350 kilometres.
The Ra'ad missile enables Pakistan to achieve "strategic standoff capability" on land and at sea, as it uses extremely complex "Cruise Technology" that has been developed by only a few countries in the world, the army had said.
India AND Pakistan have refused to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and other international regulatory pacts that restrict developing or testing nuclear weapons. India considers the NPT as discriminatory, while Pakistan said that it will not join the international treaty until its neighbor does.
