“In the summer of 2012 India tested several ballistic missiles of various ranges. This issue caused much speculation in the media on the theme of deteriorating situation in East and South-East Asia. But conducted tests were a part of the well-known program on rockets development for military use. China and Pakistan for a long time have in service such short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles which India tested. Moreover, conducted tests did not cause any negative reaction of China and Pakistan themselves, so there is no need to dramatize the situation”, - Vice-president of the Observer Research Foundation, Nandan Unnikrishnan.
