If Scotland does get its independence then NATO meetings are going to be very awkward for a while if they’re seated next to the UK
Are they even gonna stay in NATO? I thought part of the independence movement was to demilitarize. NATO kinda has requirements about that.
Honestly, it’s not known. NATO issued a statement saying that if Scotland secedes they have “no right to demand membership” which may mean they could be cut out of the treaty entirely.
From what I understand they probably want to remain in NATO, and, if anything, they’ll have a small peacekeeping force that they can deploy like Ireland do theirs.
Then again, a great amount of the soldiery in the UK are Scots. Disproportionate to their population size.
