Scotland determined to stay in EU, Sturgeon says in Brussels – Reuters
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Wednesday on a short-notice visit to Brussels that Scotland was intent on remaining in the European Union, despite last week's British vote to quit the bloc, according to Reuters.
After meeting European Parliament President Martin Schulz, the pro-independence leader told reporters: "Scotland is determined to stay in the EU," Reuters reports.
Schulz said he had "listened and learned."
As UNIAN reported earlier, 51.9% of the UK voters supported the Leave campaign meaning the country will withdraw from the European Union.
