As the Scottish government pushes on with its bid to hold a referendum on leaving the United Kingdom, with a hearing scheduled at the British Supreme Court on October 11 and 12, Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for External Affairs Angus Robertson has told FRANCE 24 that his government is “not giving up”. “We want friends in Europe to understand that we are in favour of a legal, constitutional route to independence. When it comes to that stage, we look forward to working with European nations,” he explained.
