Korea's Nuclear Safety and Security Commission has given the green light to restart the nation's Gori unit 1 nuclear power plant after safety concerns shut it down for four months.
The safety panel on Wednesday said an extensive three-month inspection into the plant's nuclear reactors and its durability showed that it's safe to run.
However, Korea's Ministry of Knowledge Economy said it will not restart the plant right away and will wait until they have fully explained the panel's results to residents in the community.
In February, a back-up electricity generator at Gori unit 1 experienced a power outage, but the incident went unreported until a month later.
The plant was immediately shut down in March and an investigaton was launched.
