Turkey's nuclear investment plans will not be affected by the natural disaster in Japan, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.

"Our investments will continue in the light of logic, science and experiment, we will take every possible precaution in the construction and management of the nuclear power plant," Erdogan said during a joint news conference in Moscow with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

"But there are things that human power is inadequate to prevent, like natural disasters. This will not affect our plans and schedule for the nuclear power plant," he added.

Prospective energy deals, including plans for Russia to build the first nuclear power plant in earthquake prone Turkey, dominated the agenda for the meeting between the Turkish and Russian leaders.
