No EU member has said it will block Scottish membership: Salmond
LONDON (Reuters) - Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said on Monday that no member state of the EU had indicated it would seek to block Scottish membership of the 28-member bloc.
The decision was one for member states, he said in a speech in Aberdeen, but not to recognize Scotland's democratic will would run counter to the spirit of the EU.
"No member state has suggested they would seek to block Scottish membership," he added.
