Scotland safer in UK, says Hague
Michael SettleSpeaking in Edinburgh in his first major intervention in the debate, the Foreign Secretary will say Scots would have to "start again in world affairs" and face the cost of establishing new diplomatic and intelligence networks.
He will say he has met "bafflement anyone would try to break up a union that has been so resilient, so successful and so admired as ours" while travelling to about 70 countries in the past three years.
The Secretary of State will emphasise Scotland's membership of the world's sixth-largest economy, which is represented at the G7, G8 and G20 and has a permanent seat at the UN Security Council as well as an influential and growing diplomatic network.
