Ex-Japan Prime Minister Nakasone Yasuhiro dies at 101   

Former Japanese Prime Minister Nakasone Yasuhiro, who promoted a "comprehensive evaluation of postwar politics" and carried out administrative and fiscal reforms, died at a Tokyo hospital on Nov. 29. He was 101.

Nakasone helmed the Japanese government for nearly five years from November 1982 to November 1987, toward the end of the Cold War.

Nakasone promoted top-level diplomacy including his "Ron-Yasu" relationship with then U.S. President Ronald Reagan. He transformed the Japan-U.S. relationship into one more like a military alliance. His Cabinet approved a decision to treat Japan's supply of weapons technology to the United States as an exception to the Three Principles of Arms Exports.

He also played a leading role in splitting the debt-ridden Japanese National Railways into six regional passenger companies and a nationwide freight company in April 1987.

He was elected to his first term as a member of the House of Representatives in 1947. He was re-elected 20 consecutive times and served as a legislator for over 56 years until he retired in 2003 on the advice of then Prime Minister Koizumi Junichiro.
