British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday the Scottish National Party would join talks on transferring further powers to Scotland after voters rejected independence.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said he is “delighted” that Scotland’s referendum returned a no vote to independence from the United Kingdom.

“It would have broken my heart to see our United Kingdom come to an end,” he said.

Mr. Cameron defended the decision to go ahead with the poll, saying “it is right to take, and not to duck, the big decisions.” Now the will of the Scottish people has been heard, and “the debate has been settled for a generation,” he said.
