More information about Final Jeopardy:
One year after North Vietnam’s Lê Đức Thọ declined the prize, believing that Vietnamese peace did not yet exist, Eisaku Satō, who served as Prime Minister of Japan from 1964 to 1972, was awarded (and accepted) the Nobel Peace Prize (sharing the prize with Irish politician Seán MacBride). Satō was awarded the Prize for his introduction of Japan’s Three Non-Nuclear Principles – that being the non-production, non-possession, and non-introduction of nuclear weapons. During Satō’s Prime Ministership, Japan also entered the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
