Scotland is your home, equalities minister tells EU migrants
Angela Constance says the Scottish Government will not tolerate hate crimes against immigrants.
Migrants from the EU in Scotland "remain welcome here", the Scottish Government's equalities secretary has said.
Angela Constance said the Scottish Government continues to "value" the contribution of immigrants.
Constance told migrants at a community hub in Scotland that Scotland is "your home".
She said: "Scotland is a modern, outward looking, open and inclusive country. Today I have heard from people from across Europe and beyond about their understandable concerns on what last week's referendum will mean for them.
"We are listening, and we want those living in Scotland to know you remain welcome here, Scotland is your home and your contribution is valued.
"Scotland delivered a strong vote to remain in the EU and we are determined to provide people with the necessary reassurance around this."
The equalities secretary also stressed the government "will not tolerate" hate crime against immigrants.
Constance said: "We have a social, moral and international responsibility to ensure those who are originally from outside of Scotland feel safe and welcome here.
"We won't shirk from that and we will not tolerate hate crime of any sort. It is vital we engage with all communities across the country to send out a clear message: This is Scotland, you are part of the fabric of our country and that is the way it will remain".
Reports of hate crime to a government website rose in the days following the EU referendum.
Across the United Kingdom, 52% of people voted to leave the European Union. In Scotland, 62% of people voted to remain.
Around 173,000 people in Scotland are nationals of the other 27 European Union nations.
