WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday President Barack Obama remains committed to keeping nuclear energy as part of the U.S. energy mix despite concerns about its safety after the earthquake in Japan.

"It remains a part of the president's overall energy plan," White House spokesman Jay Carney said about nuclear energy.
