Former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone has died at the age of 101. Nakasone was Japan’s prime minister from November 1982 to November 1987.   According to Xinhua news, sources informed that Nakasone, a politician known for his support of expanding Japan’s defense provisions, passed away at a hospital in Tokyo just after 7:00 a.m. local time Friday. Widely regarded as a strong figure in politics, the former Japanese leader, in terms of diplomacy, was also known to have a close, first name-basis relationship with former U.S. President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.   During his tenure, he was an advocate for and worked towards the privatization of Japan’s national railway system and was also a proponent of revising Japan’s pacifist Constitution.   Born in Gunma Prefecture’s Takasaki City in 1918, Nakasone entered politics in 1947, securing a seat in Japan’s House of Representatives, or lower house of parliament, and went on to hold his seat for 20 successive elections.The post Former Japanese Prime Minister, Yasuhiro Nakasone dies at the age of 101 appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
