Nicola Sturgeon admits an independent Scotland might not seek immediate membership of the EU

Nicola Sturgeon admits an independent Scotland might not seek immediate membership of the EU
Nicola Sturgeon has admitted for the first time that an independent Scotland might not immediately seek to rejoin the European Union.
Despite calling for a new independence referendum over Brexit, the First Minister confirmed Scotland may need a “phased” approach to becoming a full EU member.
She said that “by necessity”, in the event of a vote to break-up the UK, Scotland might have to pursue membership of the European Free Trade Association (Efta), whose members include Norway and Iceland, before achieving full EU membership.
