The competing missile tests came after the countries concluded a crucial round of peace talks in New Delhi aimed at resolving their differences.

Both countries routinely test-fire missiles and usually inform each other of the tests ahead of time .

The Prithvi II has a range of 250km and can be fitted with a nuclear or conventional payload of up to 500kg.
