Former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone has died at the age of 101, Japan’s National Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) reported Friday.

Nakasone, who served as prime minister between 1982 and 1987, is known internationally for his friendship with the late US President Ronald Reagan. At home, bureaucrats fought for sweeping reforms.

These include the privatization of railways, telecommunications and the tobacco industry. But critics say he has failed to implement a package of reform proposals to help Japan’s economy grow.

While proud of Japan’s global status, Yasuhiro Nakasone failed to fulfill his dream of revising his country’s pacifist law, drafted by the United States, with a view to demystifying the military’s status and strengthening its international role.

In 1983, he became the first Japanese prime minister to pay an official visit to South Korea, repairing relations with a Japanese-colonized country from 1910 to 1945.
