India’s ICBMs may fuel arms race with China

India’s development of ICBMs is likely to see China deploy its own MIRV missiles which can carry multiple warheads, leading to an intense arms, race in the region, says a new report on global nuclear weapons by renowned US experts. The report says that the decision by China and India to equip their ballistic missiles with multiple independently targetable re entry vehicles (MIRVs) will influence the global nuclear stockpile trends. Described by Indian scientists as an ICBM, Agni V is not likely to carry multiple manoeuvrable warheads or MIRVs but its successors, including Agni VI, are likely to have the technology.
