British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said that if she is elected Prime Minister of Great Britain, she will not allow a new referendum on independence in Scotland.
It is reported by Ukrinform with reference to The Daily Telegraph.
“Scottish nationalists agreed that the referendum should be held once a generation. I will make sure that they follow their word. I will work to strengthen our entire union. If I become prime minister, I will not give such permission. It is clear to me that as long as I am in charge, there will be no second referendum on Scottish independence,” Truss said.
As previously reported by the agency, last year the first minister Scotland Nicola Sturgeon says next year the country will resume efforts aimed at gaining the independence of the United Kingdom with a view to holding a referendum in 2023.
