OKUMA, Japan (Kyodo) -- Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged Monday that the central government will take the initiative in decommissioning the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant devastated by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan.

Visiting the town of Okuma, which hosts the crisis-hit Tokyo Electric Power Co. complex, to check its recovery from the disaster, the prime minister told Okuma Mayor Toshitsuna Watanabe that the central government "will try to ensure (the reconstruction) plan will make progress."

Following the nuclear accident, all residents remain evacuated with functions of the town government relocated to the Fukushima city of Aizuwakamatsu, some 100 kilometers west of the municipality.

Later in the day, Abe visited the town of Naraha, also in Fukushima, where an evacuation order issued after the nuclear crisis was lifted in early September.

In a meeting with five people who returned to Naraha, Abe said his government will "cooperate with the municipal government to fully support" them in rebuilding their life.

The prime minister also attended an opening ceremony of a research facility focused on the decommissioning of the nuclear plant. He was briefed there about a robot that can be remotely controlled while inspecting the interior of nuclear reactors.
