India on Saturday did not give much credence to the test-firing of a ballistic missile by Pakistan saying such tests were regularly required as the technology was imported.

"Such tests have been happening for ever. Pakistan requires testing of missiles as the technology is flowing in from some other parts of the world. Therefore, regular testing is required," Navy chief Admiral Sureesh Mehta, who is also the Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff Committee, told reporters in New Delhi.

His comment was sought on the test-firing of the Shaheen-II or Hatf-VI long-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile by Pakistan on Saturday. It is Pakistan's longest range missile with a reach of 2,000 kms and capable of carrying nuclear and conventional warheads.
