The Japanese government intends to allow residents of the no-entry zone near the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant to return home until 2029.

At a joint meeting on Tuesday, the Reconstruction and Nuclear Accident Working Groups approved a series of government measures
aimed at lifting the evacuation order for these areas by 2030.

The measures target areas where the order was not originally intended to be lifted on evacuation, in areas where return is considered very difficult.

According to the working groups, the government will carefully study the wishes of residents and decontaminate places where they want to return.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said that 11+ years after the accident, the reconstruction is stubbornly continuing thanks to the efforts made. However, in his opinion, recovery after a nuclear accident requires medium and long-term measures.
