Pakistan Navy on Saturday successfully test-fired several surface-to air-missiles during its ongoing naval exercises in the Arabian Sea, a navy statement said. A spokesman of the Pakistan Navy said that the successful tests were carried off the Makran Coast in Balochistan province during the ongoing exercises which are named Sea Spark.

 “All the targets were precisely hit by the missiles fired during the tests,” the spokesman said. During the tests Admiral Asif Sandaila, chief of Pakistan Navy was also present. Admiral Sandaila said that the successful tests would strengthen Pakistan’s missile operating capacity in land and aerial defence.

The successful testing of missiles has also increased the operational capacity of Pakistan Navy, he said. The naval chief said that Pakistan Navy was fully aware of its responsibilities for defending the naval territories of the country.

The admiral also urged the naval force to make optimum use of the resources, the nation was allocating to them by deferring their pressing economic needs. The naval chief also visited the Jinnah Naval Base at Ormara to see the harbour defence exercises. He appreciated the spirit of the naval and other personnel engaged in the exercises.
