Pakistan on Thursday successfully test-fired a new version of its Ghauri V nuclear-capable missile, the military said. The medium-range missile, which can hit targets at a distance of 1,300 kilometers (800 miles), was fired to mark the end of military exercises being held at an undisclosed location, an army statement said. Although Pakistan frequently tests different versions of its missiles, the announcement comes a day after South Asia's nuclear rivals Pakistan and India concluded a crucial round of peace talks in New Delhi aimed at resolving their differences, including the thorny issue of Kashmir.
