Safety is one of the key considerations in a current pre-feasibility study on nuclear energy, and it will be "a long time" before any decision is made, said Singapore's Trade and Industry Ministry.

The ministry said this in response to a query from media which received comments from viewers who wanted to know about Singapore's nuclear plans in the wake of Japan's crisis.

The ministry said it is also monitoring and learning from the developments in Japan.

In November, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong had said Singapore should not dismiss the option of nuclear power as a viable and clean source of energy.

Mr. Lee also said a nuclear power plant could be built within his lifetime.

Friday's deadly quake and tsunami have damaged a nuclear power plant in Fukushima, causing fears of a nuclear meltdown.

The crisis has prompted several European countries to review safety standards at their plants.
