Pak to raise India’s Prithvi-II missile test at international level

Lahore: Reacting to the recent supersonic interceptor missile test by India, adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said that Pakistan will acquire advanced technology to improve its defence and will also raise the matter at the International arena.

Quoting Radio Pakistan, the Dawn stated that Aziz expressed concern over India’s missile test, saying it will disturb the balance of power in the region.

Asserting that Pakistan is not oblivious to its defence, Aziz added that Islamabad will continue to upgrade its defensive capabilities.

Assuring that Pakistan would raise its voice at the international level against India’s defense developments, the diplomat alleged that India is enjoying the cooperation of the United States, as Washington thinks a strong India is vital to contain China.

India successfully test fired its indigenously developed Prithvi-II missile from a test range off the Odisha coast yesterday.

The missile was launched at 11.15 a.m. from the launching complex.

The success of Advanced Air Defence interceptor missile test now strengthens India’s position in the very exclusive Ballistic Missile Defence club of the US, Russia and Israel. (ANI)
