Boris Johnson who is set to begin his tour in Scotland today has turned down Nicola Sturgeon`s invite for a Covid recovery discussion.

Scotland`s first minister had extended an invitation to Mr. Johnson for an in-person meeting at Bute House. In her letter to the prime minister, she emphasized the need for the two governments to “work together” wherever possible despite having different political perspectives.

In response, the prime minister said he was “keen” to have a meeting with Ms. Sturgeon but at a later date.

“There is much for us to discuss as all parts of the UK work together on our shared priority of recovering from the pandemic. I understand our officials have made good progress on the details of this since we last spoke,” Mr. Johnson said.

Meanwhile, on his two-day visit to Scotland, Mr. Johnson is expected to meet Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross who has taken to Twitter to put out an invite to the prime minister.

“I’m not sure if he got it before everyone else got it on Twitter,” she said.

“His response was quite right. Nicola Sturgeon had agreed with the prime minister that governments across the UK would meet together. That is the right approach to take and that was the agreement made recently.

“There’s constant dialogue between the Scottish and UK governments.”
