Pakistan Successfully Test Launches Upgraded Nuclear-Capable Ballistic Missile

Support SouthFront

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

On Friday Pakistan’s leaders hailed the “successful” flight test of the country’s upgraded nuclear-capable Shaheen 1-A surface-to-surface ballistic missile.

Pakistan’s military said the test “was aimed at re-validating various design and technical parameters of the weapon system including advanced navigation system,” according to the country’s English-language newspaper Dawn. State media subsequently put out official video of the launch…

The Pakistani military’s Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) later confirmed the Shaheen-1A missile test had been successfully completed with no incident, performing as intended.

With a range of over 900 kilometers (or more than 550 miles) and described as “engaging targets at land and sea with high precision,” the ballistic missile would likely be the number one weapon of choice deployed should Pakistan ever enter major war with its nuclear-armed neighbor India.

The historic rivalry and tensions have lately flared up again especially over the contested Kashmir region, after in August of 2019 India’s government voted to revoke the special status that gave Jammu and Kashmir limited autonomy.

India’s Army then sent tens of thousands of troops into the region, which leaders in Islamabad condemned as tantamount to ethnic cleansing targeting Muslims.

Assad must stay

Mustafa Mehmet

Mollas not clever enough that’s why

It not only talks, but also is funny!
And for a loooong time I thought you’re a badly written bot only capable of downvoting!

Check the news on Press TV, Iran and China finally signed that half a trillion agreement today. Just have to monitor the Chinese closely this time so that they actually perform and complete what they’ve signed up for.

Garga

Yes, the general roadmap is signed, the actual contracts and deal remain to be prepared and signed on a later (hopefully in the next administration) date. Frankly I’m fearful of anything a Reformist admin signs.

Rohani admin treated China very badly and with disrespect and threw a handful of monkey wrenches in gears of the two countries’ relations. Even today, just take a look at the wide-shot pic of Zarif and Yi and how they stand on the carpet, I’m not sure if that is according to protocols.
China wasn’t the only country which was treated bad and with disrespect. They did the same with Russia, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, Turkmenistan, Pakistan and some others. Instead danced to every tune the Europeans, South Korea, Japan and India played and got nothing in return.

The roadmap is signed between Larijani (????!!!) and Yi. How about that?

Ahson

Garga check press tv, as soon as we signed this China deal Biden is back pedaling on The Who should make the first move on JCPOA…..he withdrew the condition that Iran stop enrichment first and return to the state it was in when trump walked out on us. Now he wants to return to the JCPOA…..lol

Garga

Yes, that was expected yet still funny.

I just hope that our beloved president and wise foreign minister don’t trip over their own heads to jump on this “opportunity”. Unfortunately the fifth column is too desperate to let such a gift waste. Just browse their websites and see what drivels they write about it.

Goddmmit! Why time is passing so slowly? Can’t wait for the day I don’t hear or read anything about him except his (and his cronies) court ruling. I hope I see it before I guzzle the famous Reegh-e-Rahmat.

Ahson

you stupid turkish guppu, Iran can weaponize tomorrow if it wanted to. However, nukes are fucking useless, since you can’t use em. If anyone used these WWII era legacy weapons today, it will automatically bring down the global order and result in a third world war. You got it? That don’t mean we forsake them, but, just stick with strategic ambiguity for now…….its obvious behind the scenes Iran’s prepared for this eventuality, but the guardian council does not believe that nukes will bring security. The consensus is that nukes are obsolete as instruments of policy.

Mustafa Mehmet

A****** what is the meaning of guppu never heard about it ..you are one of the scumback of the Earth

Ahson

Guppu is you…..round faced asiatic moghal…..lol….go back to xinjiang. That’s your real home……manhoos.

Arch Bungle

Did you know the Father of the Turks was a jew?

Potato Man

wtf is “Mollas”?
Also, NO, Iran don’t need (don’t want) nuclear weapon and they want it they can make.

Ice Icegold

Pakistan and India to kill each other.
Israel money talks my friend.
When you have nuclear weapons and you don’t use them and you prefer to use conventional weapons explains why wars are all about selling weapons and ammunition. Money makes the world go round.
By the way Assad must stay and definitely will.

Assad must stay

hey thanks ice ice gold :))

Boycott-Saudi!!!

Enough the utter nonsense about war between India & Pakistan! These are purely “divided & conquer” strategy used many times ago by the colonial UK, enough with war Drum and instead looking for corporation & mutual benefit between the two. With massive population & resources India & Pakistan can be super-power to rival Chinese influence in the region.

“…which leaders in Islamabad condemned as tantamount to ethnic cleansing targeting Muslims”

Hahahahaha!!!…alrighty then…

“Religious discrimination in Pakistan is a serious issue for the human rights situation in modern-day Pakistan. Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Shias and Ahmadis among other religious minorities often face discrimination and at times are even subjected to violence. In some cases Christian churches and Ahmadi mosques and the worshippers themselves have been attacked. Khawaja Nazimuddin, the 2nd Prime Minister of Pakistan, stated: “I do not agree that religion is a private affair of the individual nor do I agree that in an Islamic state every citizen has identical rights, no matter what his caste, creed or faith be”.

The State of Pakistan has particularly remained a discriminatory law enforcer against Non-Muslims since independence. One of the significant issues being faced by minority communities is the abuse of the blasphemy law. People belonging to minority religions are often falsely accused of using derogatory remarks against the Islamic prophet Muhammad, resulting in fines, lengthy prison sentences, and sometimes the death penalty”

Arch Bungle

‘israel’ must be sh**ing it’s pants right now …

Hey, how israel hasn’t bombed Pakistan yet ?

Weren’t they determined that no muslim nation would become a nuclear power?

Porc Halal
