Pakistan Mulls Missiles

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan () -- Pakistan might be forced to build its own missiles if India continues its own program, President Farooq Leghari said Wednesday.


"Pakistan will do whatever it can to respond for our own security because the induction of the Prithvi missile will create a very serious and a new threat perception for Pakistan," Leghari told Reuters in an interview.


India carried out what it said was a successful test of its medium-range Prithvi-2 missile on Saturday. Pakistan says the missile is capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
