印度宣布成为导弹强国,北京在射程内
India Declares Itself Major Missile Power; Beijing Within Reach
印度星期四宣布成功试射了一枚能够把核弹头打到中国首都北京的新导弹,并宣称印度成为“导弹强国”。印度媒体播放了烈火-5型远程导弹从东部的奥里萨邦发射测试场发射以后飞行的录像。印度总理辛格向为印度实现“国防自立”做出贡献的印度科学家表示祝贺。印度国防研究与发展组织发言人拉维•古普塔对印度媒体说,印度的导弹能力可以与世界上一流军事强国媲美。烈火-5型导弹的射程是5000公里,被形容为印度战略能力的“飞跃”。这种导弹可以携带核弹头,射程涵盖北京和上海。
India Thursday said it successfully test-fired a new missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead as far as Beijing - announcing itself as a major "missile power." Indian media showed video of the long-range Agni-V missile in-flight after its launch from a test range in the eastern state of Orissa. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh congratulated the country's scientists for contributing to the country's "self reliance in defense." India's Defense Research and Development Organization chief Vijay Saraswat told Indian media that the country now has missile capabilities that match with the world's elite military powers. The Agni-V has a range of 5,000 kilometers and had been described as a "quantum leap" in India's strategic capability - able to carry nuclear warheads as far as the Chinese capital as well as Shanghai.
中国共产党的《环球时报》对印度试射导弹做出反应,提出警告说,在可预见的将来,如果印度与中国展开全面军备竞赛,印度不可能占上风。在试射导弹前,印度政府官员表示这种导弹不应被视为威胁。古普塔说,印度有一个“不首先使用”政策,而且印度的导弹系统都没有针对“特定国家”。美国呼吁所有核大国克制核能力。国务院发言人马克•托纳星期三说,华盛顿了解印度的测试,并且指出印度拥有可靠的不扩散纪录,而且它也在防扩散问题上与国际社会合作。印度自2006年以来一直在测试其弹道导弹防御系统。如果测试成功,印度将成为拥有有效导弹防御系统的少数几个国家之一。
China's communist party newspaper, the Global Times, responded to India's test launch with a warning of its own, saying "India would stand no chance in an overall arms race with China" for the foreseeable future. Prior to the test launch, Indian officials cautioned the missile should not be seen as a threat. Ravi Gupta, a spokesman for India's Defense Research and Development Organization, said India has a "no first use" policy and that India's missile systems are not "country specific." The United States has been calling on all nuclear powers to exercise restraint regarding nuclear capabilities. On Wednesday, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Washington was aware of the impending test, adding that India has a solid non-proliferation record and is engaged with the international community on non-proliferation issues. India has been testing its ballistic missile defense system since 2006. If it becomes viable, India would become one of the few nations with a working missile shield.
