Nicola Sturgeon sets out global vision for Scotland

BBC NEWS: Independence would offer Scotland the best way of making a positive contribution to the world, Nicola Sturgeon has claimed.

The first minister was speaking at Stanford University in California as she continued her five-day US trip.

Ms Sturgeon also urged the UK government to recognise the “right” of Scots to decide their own future.

Opposition parties said she was trying to build support for a referendum which the majority of Scots did not want.

The Scottish Parliament last week voted to back the first minister’s call for talks to take place with the UK government over a second independence referendum.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has written to the Prime Minister asking for early discussions to allow a referendum on independence to take place.


Scotland’s first minister has signed a letter formally asking for powers to hold a second Scottish independence referendum.

The Scottish Parliament voted by 69 to 59 on Tuesday in favour of seeking permission for another referendum.

Nicola Sturgeon argues Scotland should have the choice on what path to follow in the wake of the Brexit vote.
