India on Friday announced it had completed all tests and was ready to deploy its latest nuclear-tipped missile, capable of striking targets at a distance of 3,000 kilometres (1,860 miles).

"All technical parameters for the launch of the missile have been completed," M. Natarajan announced at a news conference in New Delhi.

"We are ready for the launch today... it is now for political leadership to give the nod," Natarajan said of the Indian-built missile codenamed Agni-111 (Fire).

Agni-III is the longest range missile of its type and can carry a one-tonne conventional or nuclear warhead.
