Pakistan's Army Strategic Forces Command has concluded it's military exercise with a successful test launch of the Shaheen-II (Hatf-VI) ballistic missile, according to reports.

MOSCOW, November 13 (Sputnik) — Pakistan has conducted a successful test of the Shaheen-II (Hatf-VI) ballistic missile, capable of carrying both nuclear and conventional warheads to a range of over 900 miles, Pakistan's Geo TV reported Thursday, citing the country's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The launch was the conclusion of an exercise by Pakistan's Army Strategic Forces Command, aimed at ensuring the operational readiness of the national Strategic Missile Group, Geo TV reported citing ISPR.

The launch was witnessed by a number of the country's top military commanders.

Pakistan declared itself a nuclear power in 1998 after an underground nuclear test that followed those made by India. Pakistan and India have competed in nuclear missile testing for more than 20 years.

According to estimates by the US Congressional Research Service, Pakistan's nuclear arsenal consisted of 90-110 nuclear warheads as of 2013.
