"The matter has been settled now for a generation. Or, as (Scottish First Minister Alex) Salmond once said, 'for a lifetime'," Cameron said after Scots decisively rejected an independence referendum.
"Now it is time to move forward. There must be a 'balanced settlement, fair to the people of Scotland, but of the rest of the UK too," The Guardian quoted Cameron as saying.
During his speech, Cameron also said that he wants to give more power to Scotland.
"Britain is a country where these matters can be resolved peacefully, at the ballot box."
"It is time to move forward to a better future," Cameron added.
