India on Wednesday successfully test-fired surface-to-surface strategic missile Agni-5 that can strike targets at ranges up to 5,000 km with a very high degree of accuracy. The test was carried out from the APJ Abdul Kalam Island off the Odisha coast. The successful test of the Agni-V missile is in line with India’s stated policy to have credible minimum deterrence that underpins the commitment to no first use, the defence ministry said in a statement. The latest test comes at a time when India and China are locked in a border row in the Ladakh sector and the Chinese Army has also scaled up its military activities in the eastern sector, including Arunachal Pradesh.
