Spain's Prime Minster Mariano Rajoy has suggested that Scotland would have to apply to join the EU after a referendum Yes vote.
His intervention led to heated exchanges at First Minister's Questions at Holyrood this afternoon.
A suggestion that an independent Scotland would have to apply for membership of the European Union as a new state has been dismissed by a member of Alex Salmond's cabinet.
Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead said if there was a Yes vote in next year's referendum, Scotland would negotiate to become an independent member of the EU from within Europe.
Speaking to BBC Radio Scotland, he said the country would enjoy a:

"seamless transition because we have the unique position that we're not joining Europe from outside of Europe, we're joining Europe from within Europe."
He spoke out after Spanish prime minster Mariano Rajoy said that if part of an existing member state became independent, it would be "left out of the European Union" and would need to apply for membership as a new state.
Mr Rajoy reportedly told a press conference in Madrid yesterday:
– Mariano Rajoy, Spanish Prime Minister
"I would like to see the consequences of secession presented to Scots in a realist way. Citizens have the right to be well-informed.
"If part of a member state becomes independent, it would be left out of the European Union and it would be good for citizens (in the EU) and Scots to know that. EU entry would need to be be approved by all 28 member states."
After comments made by Mariano Rajoy, Prime Minister of Spain concerning an independent Scotland's membership of the EU, Better Together leader Alistair Darling said:
This is another blow to Alex Salmond's claims that nothing would change if we vote to go it alone. The Spanish Prime Minister has just made it clear that everything would change.
We now know what the position of the Spanish government would be if we vote for independence. This has created even more uncertainty.
