India successfully fired Agni-1, a 900 kilometer (559 mile) range missile, on Thursday morning in Orissa state.

The United States has voiced its disappointment in India for adding intensity to the already tense situation between India and Pakistan. The two countries have been encouraged to have an open dialogue to avoid the possibility of ever using such weapons.

Agni-1, first unveiled in 1999, is part of India’s military defense to protect itself from not just Pakistan, but its other nuclear neighbor, China.
