Boris Johnson Rejected Sturgeon's Demand for Referendum
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has sent a letter to Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon rejecting her request for a referendum on Scotland's independence, Reuters reported.
Such a referendum cannot be produced without the consent of the British Government.
Nicola Sturgeon made a written request in December to Johnson to begin negotiations or to give the Scottish Regional Government the authority to hold a referendum, Reuters recalls.
"The UK government will continue to uphold the democratic decision of the Scottish people and the promise that you made to them," he wrote.
"For that reason, I cannot agree to any request for a transfer of power that would lead to further independence referendums." Johnson wrote in a response to Sturgeon, which was published by the British prime minister.
