It said the reactor No.3 at Ikata nuclear power plant in western Japan meets safety guidelines.

The statement comes after similar decisions on four other reactors at two different plants, AFP said.

For an actual restart there must first be a public consultation and local authorities must also agree.

Last month, a court granted an injunction banning operators from restarting two green lit reactors amid concerns over lax safety standards.
