NEW DELHI: After China's negative comments today about the Agni-V test, New Delhi quickly hit back at Beijing saying the successful test not only "complied with all applicable international obligations", it was also "not aimed at any country."
"India's strategic autonomy and growing engagement contributes to strategic stability," the external affairs ministry said this evening about the test of the nuclear-capable Agni-5 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
Earlier today, the Chinese foreign ministry made noises about being exceptionally concerned about Agni-V affecting "strategic balance and stability in South Asia."+ Of course, it completely ignored its own culpability in helping arm its "all-weather friend" Pakistan, a known nuclear proliferator+
Agni V's range - 5,000 km - makes it capable of reaching the furthest northern parts of China+ as well as Europe. It's no wonder then that Hua earlier today bristled at media reports that suggested Agni-5 was targeted at China. And that's why it brought up the UN Security Council+ .
Interesting that previously Pakistan would constantly object to India''s tests. And China was content with it as that implied that India wasn''t in China''s league. But now, it is China that is reacting while Pakistan realizes that India is out of its league! Now, that is progress.
orn In January
Now, India must focus on 15000 Kms range.... I think that would be real milestone which would show India''s might.
india should develope many more of this missile...should even enhance the range of these missiles.....china itself has many more and that too of very long ranges than agni 5
India needs to have target ICBM of 10000 and 15000 kms to be a super power it deserves to be and is capable of.
India is a peace loving nation. The Agni V is not aimed at China...not ALL of China, just almost all parts of it. See?..there is a difference. If China behaves then why does it care what India has? Canada doesn''t have any nuke or hardly any armed forces for that matter and it doesn''t care what the US has. If China can be like Canada then it has nothing to fear.
Why China can fume for everything and India can''t. What are Chinese doing on our land occupied by Pakistan and what is India waiting to see more?
Lol apparantly every nation can hv nuclear technology, but india cant think abt it!? Wow evn pakistan has nukes, china thinks vr just gonna sit and watch? Lol
If China passes negative comments about a test then it must have been a great successful test. We are proud of you DRDO.
