MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the statement, May will also affirm commitment to fully engage with the Scottish Government in the negotiations on the UK’s exit from the European Union.
"I believe with all my heart in the United Kingdom – the precious bond between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This visit to Scotland is my first as Prime Minister and I’m coming here to show my commitment to preserving this special union that has endured for centuries," May said in a statement ahead of the visit.
In June, First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon pledged to secure a special status for Scotland in relations with the European Union after the Brexit referendum.
Scottish voters took part in an independence referendum in September 2014 that saw 55 percent of voters backing Scotland’s continued membership of the United Kingdom which was established in 1707.
