NICOSIA - Cyprus said on Monday it was worried by plans by quake-prone Turkey to build a nuclear power station on its southern shores, close to the Mediterranean island.

Turkey is pressing ahead with plans to build a four-reactor plant near the coastal city of Mersin, some 25 km (15 miles) from an active fault line. Cyprus, a member of the European Union, lies just south of Turkey.

"I've expressed our grave concern over the nuclear program of Turkey, and in particular the plans of Ankara to construct a nuclear power station in a seismically active area," said Cypriot energy minister Antonis Paschalides.
