US intelligence agencies have assessed that as early as 2015, Iran will be set to test an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), encompassing the capability to strike the United States, the Daily Mail on Thursday cited a Pentagon report as stating.

The US Department of Defense assessment reportedly covered the various possible nuclear threats the US could imminently face in the coming decade.

The Mail cited the US Department of Defense report as stating that China, Iran and North Korea were rapidly proliferating the developments of nuclear warheads capable of hitting the United States.

"Iran has ambitious ballistic missile and space launch development programs and continues to attempt to increase the range, lethality, and accuracy of its ballistic missile force," the Mail quoted the Pentagon report as saying.
