Scotland may vote on independence in 2014

Britain has set out the conditions under which Scotland can decide whether to sever its centuries-old constitutional ties with Britain. The British government offered with certain conditions Tuesday to remove legal hurdles so Scots can hold a referendum on independence from Britain, Voice of America said. First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond wants to delay the vote until late 2014 so the independence movement in Scotland can gain momentum. But British Prime Minister David Cameron is urging Scotland to hold the referendum as soon as possible to avoid economic problems that might arise due to a long debate.
