Test fire of Agni not to lead peace talk: Mirwaiz
Srinagar: Moderate Hurriyat Conference Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today said the test-fire of nuclear capable Agni-V ballistic missile will not make peace between India and Pakistan but the "dangerous weapons chase" will lead to deterioration of the situation.
"On one side they are talking about trade, friendly relations and peace, and on the other side, both (India and Pakistan) are involved in a dangerous weapons race," Mirwaiz said in a statement.
Mirwaiz said the recent test-fire of Agni-V, which has a strike range of over 5,000 km, will "not lead to peace" between India and Pakistan. "Instead it will deteriorate the situation," the Hurriyat leader added.
