From YNetNews:

North Korea is becoming a direct threat to the United States and could develop an inter-continental ballistic missile within five years, the US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates told reporters in Beijing on Tuesday following talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao.

Gates told reporters he did not believe North Korea would amass large numbers of the missiles, saying it would be a limited capability.
