UITV/ DEC 28 Is china seriously furious over the  test launch of the Agni – 5? Their main concern is that the ballistic missiles are not supposed to be manufactured which carry Nuclear fuels in it. And they say India, should not have done this ballistic missile test.

There is a speculation that DRDO and ISRO are going to work on Agni-6 will carry more payload of Nuclear fuels.

According to the Chinese officials, this matter will be seriously discussed in the UN Security Council.

Without referring to Pakistan, China on Tuesday advocated “preserving the strategic balance and stability in South Asia,” after India successfully test-fired Agni-V ballistic missile.

“China always maintains that preserving the strategic balance and stability in South Asia is conducive to peace and prosperity of regional countries and beyond,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying in response to a question.

Without going into details during her regular press briefing, Ms. Hua also signaled that there are restrictions imposed by the UN Security Council on India for developing missiles carrying nuclear weapons.

                      The test of Agni-5 has shown the world the India is growing power in technology and aersopace Industry.


On Monday India had successfully test-fired Agni-V, the country's most lethal nuclear-capable inter-continental ballistic missile with a range of over 5,000 km that covers entire China which may also pave the way for user trial of the weapons system and its eventual induction into the Strategic Forces Command (SFC).

“We have noted reports on India's test-firing of Agni-V ballistic missile. The UN Security Council has explicit regulations on whether India can develop ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear weapons,'' she observed.

Agni V , with a range above 5000 km, can carry a payload of 1.5 tonnes, three times the minimum weight of an atomic warhead. It is also more survivable to a counterstrike, as it is mounted on a TATRA truck, which imparts mobility to the weapon-system. Missiles having nuclear warheads launched from fixed silos can be more easily targeted.

The spokesperson stressed that India and China, as emerging economies, were not rivals but partners, following media reports from India and Japan.

“We also notice reports, including some from India and Japan, speculating whether India made this move to counter China. They need to ask the Indian side for their intention behind the move. On the Chinese part, China and India have reached an important consensus that the two countries are not rivals for competition but partners for cooperation as two significant developing countries and emerging economies,” she said.

Ms. Hua pointed out that “China is willing to work alongside regional countries, including India, to maintain the long-lasting peace, stability and prosperity of the region.”

All in all, China is furious about India’s new launch and it has said that this fact will be discussed in the UN Security Council. Now, India should be careful enough, as China is the permanent member in The UN Security council and it will be task for the Indian Diplomats to reply back sharply, if there is any derailments.

Discussing the goals of Beijing's space policy, the white paper said, "To explore the vast cosmos, develop the space industry and build China into a space power is a dream we pursue unremittingly". China aims to use space for peaceful purposes and to guarantee national security, and to carry out cutting-edge scientific research, it said. 

Here is the congratulatory message from the Prime Minister of India.
