MOSCOW - Russia on July 14 fired a strategic missile from a nuclear submarine, the second successful test in as many days, the head of Russia's general staff, Nikolai Makarov, said.

"The launch was a success according to all the parameters," Makarov was quoted as saying by Russian agencies. "Our objectives were reached, all tasks have been accomplished."

The intercontinental ballistic missile was fired from the Briansk nuclear submarine near the North Pole. The missile has a range of nearly 9,000 kilometers (5,580 miles).
