An independent Scotland would not expect to have a permanent seat on the Security Council. Like other nations, Scotland would from time to time be a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council according to the existing system of election for non-permanent members by the General Assembly.
The current Scottish Government would intend to support the rest of the UK remaining a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
