Islamabad May. 9: According to a report in the Nation, Pakistan has conducted a test fire of its Babar cruise missile without any prior notice.
Although the test was conducted last Wednesday, Apr 29 the Foreign Office disclosed the event this week only.
Sources in the Foreign Office said that the event was kept a secret to avoid any negative impact on the talks between President Zardari and US President Barack Obama.
According to an agreement between India and Pakistan, both the countries need to inform each other prior to conducting ballistic missile test, but there is no such accord in place for cruise missiles.
