ISLAMABAD, May 19 (APP): Pakistan Thursday voiced its
serious concern over India’s testfire of supersonic
interceptor missile and warned to “take all necessary measures to augment the country’s defence capabilities”.

“We are not oblivious to our defence needs and we will
be compelled to upgrade our defensive capabilities through
suitable technologies,” the Foreign Office spokesman said in
a weekly press briefing held here at the Foreign Office.

India testfired its anti-ballistic missile Ashwin on May 15 capable of intercepting and bringing down hostile ballistic
missiles.
