Alex Salmond: Scotland 'would share military' under independence

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has said the country would be willing to share military facilities with "friendly neighbours" under independence.

In an interview on the BBC's Politics Show, Mr Salmond said that he would not hold an early referendum on independence, despite the SNP achieving an overall majority in the Scottish Parliament.

Mr Salmond said "many countries in the world share military facilities with friendly neighbours and there's absolutely no reason why Scotland wouldn't be prepared to do that."
