BY ANTONY OU | APRIL 19, 2012

Antony Ou (China Representative of CESRAN) speaks on Live Broadcast of The Times of India – The Newshour.

In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists — Antony Ou, China Representative, Centre for strategic research & Analysis (CESRAN); Maj Gen (retd) G D Bakshi, Former Research Fellow, IDSA; M K Bhadrakumar, Former Diplomat; Air Marshall (Retd) P S Ahluwalia, Former Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Southern And Western Region; Brig (retd ) V Mahalingam; and Capt (retd) Bana Singh, Param Vir Chakra Awardee — discuss India’s moment of triumph as the country successfully test-fired the nuclear-capable Agni-V Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile today (April 19). The surface-to-surface Agni-V was launched from a mobile platform from the Wheeler Island off the Odisha coast at 8:07 a.m. This has placed India at the threshold of an elite five-member club that possesses ICBMs. The missile is 17.5 metre-tall and two metre-wide and it weighs around 50 tonnes, including a 1.5 tonne dummy warhead.
