Alex Salmond reiterates SNP's 'no to nuclear weapons' policy

Help

SNP leader Alex Salmond has reiterated his party's policy on outlawing nuclear weapons in an independent Scotland.

BBC Scotland's Sunday Politics Scotland host, Isabel Fraser, quizzed the first minister on whether a go-alone Scotland would prevent nuclear weapons-carrying warships doing exercises in Scottish waters.

Mr Salmond said: "The issue about visiting warships, etc, no country ever confirms the existence of nuclear weapons on its warships - that is well known.

"This is an issue all non-nuclear countries have to face up to within Nato and out of Nato and we will do exactly the same thing."
