Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Wednesday on a short-notice visit to Brussels that Scotland was intent on remaining in the European Union, despite last week’s British vote to quit the bloc.

After meeting European Parliament President Martin Schulz, the pro-independence leader told reporters: “Scotland is determined to stay in the EU.”

Schulz said he had “listened and learned”.
