MOSCOW, July 2 (Xinhua) -- Russia has successfully tested a new anti-ballistic missile, Colonel Pavel Kuzmin, a spokesman for the Russian air and anti-missile defense command of the Aerospace force, said Tuesday.

"After a series of tests, the new anti-ballistic missile ... (hit) an assigned target with a given accuracy," a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry quoted Kuzmin as saying.

The missile is designed to counter ballistic missile attacks and was launched from the Sary-Shagan test range in Kazakhstan, the statement said.
