Pakistan has successfully test-fired a cruise missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

Pakistan's army says the missile has a range of 700 kilometers and was launched Monday from an undisclosed location.

An army statement says the missile has stealth features and is capable of flying low to the ground.

Pakistan and its arch-rival and neighbor India, which is also nuclear armed, routinely test their missiles and generally notify each other about test dates.

The two countries have fought three wars since they gained independence from Britain in 1947.
