Pakistan test-fired a new version of a medium-range ballistic missile Friday in the country's latest efforts to boost security.

The Ghauri missile is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead with a range of 810 miles, according to the military.

Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, Chief of the Army Staff Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and senior officials viewed the launch by the army's Strategic Missile Group.

Musharraf thanked the troops for the successful launch, telling the audience that the nation had developed a nuclear deterrence capability.

"We have taken note of various imaginary scenarios being propounded by those who do not wish Pakistan well," Musharraf said. "Such elements have never reconciled to a nuclear Pakistan."

Pakistan launched another missile last week.
