ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday test fired a nuclear-capable ballistic missile with a range of 1,300km, the military said.
The military described the Hatf V Ghauri missile as a liquid fuel missile, which can carry both conventional and nuclear warheads.
The eighth missile test so far this year comes two months after the last test of a Hatf-VII with a range of 700km.
Five of those tests were conducted within a few weeks after India successfully test fired the Agni V, which can deliver a one-tonne nuclear warhead anywhere in China.
Defence analysts say India’s strategic priorities are focused more on China, while Pakistan is still concerned about its eastern neighbour.
