North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is believed to have turned 32 on January 8, 2015, but this year there have been no reports of celebrations or even any public mention of the event so far in the reclusive nation. His age is apparently a state secret. China, North Korea’s only major ally, however offered birthday wishes. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters at a daily briefing that China had “expressed congratulations” to North Korea on the occasion.
