TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said on Friday that Chubu Electric Power Co should halt all operations at its Hamaoka nuclear plant in central Japan, due to worries a strong earthquake could cause another nuclear crisis.

Kan said the government will make efforts to prevent the halt of the Hamaoka nuclear reactors from creating power supply problems.

"After deep consideration, I made this decision as the prime minister," he told a televised press conference.
