India poses no missile threat: NATO
Brussels: NATO does not consider India as a missile threat despite the country`s advanced missile development programme, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said.
India is all set to test its domestically-developed Agni-5 ballistic missile with a range of 5,000 km. The three-stage solid-fuel missile will be launched from a site on Wheelers` Island in the Bay of Bengal and is expected to reach its target area in southern Indian Ocean.
A successful test of the Agni-5 missile will put India in the elite club of nations having Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM), which includes the US, Russia, China, Britain and France.
Speaking at a news conference at the NATO headquarters in Brussels, Rasmussen said Wednesday the Alliance does not consider India as a threat to NATO allies and territory.
