Rawalpindi, Dec 11 (IBNS): Pakistan on Friday said it has conducted a successful flight test of Shaheen-III surface to surface ballistic missile which has a maximum range of 2750 kilometers.

The test flight was aimed at validating various design and technical parameters of the weapon system.

"The successful flight test with its impact point in the Arabian Sea, validating all the desired parameters was witnessed by senior officers from Strategic Plans Division, Strategic Forces, Scientists and Engineers of Strategic Organizations," Pakistan's Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

Director General Strategic Plans Division, Lieutenant General   Mazhar Jamil, congratulated the scientists and engineers on achieving a significant milestone in complementing the deterrence capability.

He asserted that Pakistan desires peaceful co-existence in the region for which nuclear deterrence would further strengthen strategic stability in South Asia.

Jamil appreciated the technical prowess, dedication and commitment of scientists who contributed whole heartedly to make this launch a success.  

He expressed his full confidence over the strategic command and control system and the strategic forces’ operational preparedness to defend against any aggressive design.
