"The course for the resumption of work [of nuclear power plants] remains unchanged," Abe said at a press conference, which marked the fifth anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
According to Abe, the work of the power plants will be resumed "in accordance with the strictest new global standards."
The Takahama plant was shut down soon after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Three of its nuclear reactors were restarted in January.
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, which occurred on March 11, 2011, was triggered by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and a subsequent tsunami. Before the disaster, nuclear reactors provided almost 30 percent of Japan's power needs.
After Fukushima, all nuclear power plants in Japan were either closed or their operations were suspended.
