I fully respect the choice that the people of Scotland have made in yesterday’s referendum.

I welcome Prime Minister Cameron's statement that the United Kingdom will go forward as a united country.

The United Kingdom is a founding member of NATO, and I am confident that the United Kingdom will continue to play a leading role to keep our Alliance strong.
