Assistant Chief Constable Mark Williams, of Police Scotland, said: “The President’s visit to Scotland will require a significant policing operation, involving thousands of officers and specialist resources. As with the visit of any high-profile head of state, detailed planning is already well under way. 

“Whilst the details of his programme are not yet clear, our objectives will be to ensure the safety of the President and of those travelling with him and to maintain public safety. In addition, we will work closely with ‎any groups to facilitate lawful protest.

"As with ‎any visit of this nature we do not disclose the specific details of the operational deployment."
