    VIENNA: Austria's foreign minister on Thursday slammed India and Pakistan's recent missile tests, insisting states' continued pursuit of nuclear weapons was "flat out irresponsible".

    "The tests of an Indian long-range missile a week ago and of an intermediate-range missile by Pakistan on Wednesday are unsettling and suggest an intensifying arms race on the subcontinent," Michael Spindelegger said in a statement.

    This "would not only be a threat to stability in Asia, but would also present a threat to global peace."

    India last Thursday tried out a new missile with a range of over 5,000 kilometres (3,100 miles), and Pakistan followed on Wednesday by test-firing an intermediate-range ballistic missile of its own.

    Both have the capability of carrying a nuclear weapon.

    "It is flat out irresponsible that the Sword of Damocles that is nuclear destruction still hangs above humanity," Spindelegger said in unusually harsh tones.

    "The international community should be able, in the 21st century, to regulate international relations without permanent mutual threats to each other's existence," he added, urging India and Pakistan to take steps towards nuclear disarmament.

    Spindelegger's comments come ahead of a conference in Vienna next week on the nuclear non-proliferation regime and as observers fear North Korea is preparing to conduct a new nuclear test.

    "North Korea should stop playing with fire and return to the negotiating table," the minister saidd.

    Austria, a strong opponent of nuclear power even for energy purposes, has long campaigned for nuclear disarmament.

    Agreed, lets go for a nuclear weapons free world....we are ready to put down our weapons..can you ask US, China to do that?

    If not, don’t talk non-sense, if u can’t participate in race, just keep your mouth shut and watch the game..country of your size hardly represent the human being on this planet, doesn’t need you to preach country like India as what they should do when it comes to protection of its over a billion population from a rogue states around it!

    WOW the ignoramus Austria, didn't utter a word on indian testing of an ICBM, but when Pakistan tested it's missile, then they realized that there is going to be an arms race in Asia. Anyways, i couldn't stop thinking that Pakistan has trolled india on this, which explains the persistent exasperation of indian members on the forum. It was suppose to be a moment, under the sun for India and all was going well, praises from these western hypocrites were pouring in, but then, the dark clouds surfaced and engulfed the skies, devoiding india of it's glorious moment and now to balance the things, these western hypocrites have also started pointing finger at india............ Awwwwwwwwwwww bad Pakistani's, they have ruined it for incredible india. :rofl:

    Every country should disable the nuclear weapon, otherwise this will be the end of the world.
    World is at stake now.
    Already smoke from Ballistic missiles and other military stuff are creating pollution in the environment and creating skin diseases.
    Arms Race is never ending phenomenon....
    Where are human right organizations??
