Pakistan has successfully tested a surface-to-surface missile with a range of 2,500 kilometers.

In a military statement Saturday, the South Asian country said the test was the second for the Hatf Six missile, which was earlier tested in March of 2005.

Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz witnessed the test, which was carried out at an undisclosed location.

Aziz congratulated the scientists, engineers and the technical staff of Pakistan's Strategic Organization.

The military statement said Hatf Six is Pakistan's longest range ballistic missile system and can carry nuclear and conventional warheads with great accuracy.

Regional rivals Pakistan and India have routinely conducted missile tests since they both conducted underground nuclear tests in 1998.
