New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to the nation, stated that India has achieved a super position in space. India’s anti satellite weapon A-SAT has successfully smashed a live satellite. Thus India has made its mark in the space and became the fourth country to achieve the power after US,Russia and China.
“Today’s A-SAT missile has given new strength to security and vision of the country. We want to assure the world that our new capability is not against any country but is the defensive initiative of a fast-moving India. India has always been against the arm race in space and this operation hasn’t changed that. This does not violate any international treaty or law”, said the PM.
“India has entered its name as an elite space power. It is the fourth country to achieve this feat after the US, Russia and China. The ‘Mission Sakthi’ operation was a difficult target to achieve,which was completed successfully within three minutes of the launch”,Narendra Modi said in his address to the nation.
