[... TEPCO] has not unveiled its plans for the Nos. 5 and 6 reactors and the four reactors at its Fukushima No. 2 plant.
[Prime Minister Shinzo Abe] said that even if the reactors’ safety is confirmed, the understanding of local governments and residents would be necessary to resume operations.
Considering the opinions of Fukushima Prefecture residents and officials, such restarts will not be easy, he said.
