Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has taken part in a special service in Sri Lanka to mark Remembrance Sunday.
Alex Salmond laid a wreath at a service in Sri Lanka
Mr Salmond attended the Commonwealth Graves Commission cemetery in Colombo. He has remained in the country since the 2014 Commonwealth Games decision.
Services have been held across Scotland to commemorate the moment when fighting stopped in November 1918 at the end of World War I.
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon led Scotland's commemorations.
Mr Salmond laid a wreath, provided by the Lady Haig Poppy Fund in Edinburgh, at the memorial in Sri Lanka to the war dead.
A wreath was also laid by the Lord Provost of Glasgow Robert Winter.
The service was led by the Rev John Purves, who is based in Colombo.
He is the only Church of Scotland Minister with a congregation in Asia.
Mr Salmond said: "The Commonwealth nations have come together as one family this week, and it is important that we pay our respects on Remembrance Sunday to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in war.
"They helped to secure the freedoms that we enjoy today, and we must never forget them."
In Edinburgh, Ms Sturgeon laid a wreath at the city chambers on behalf of the Scottish Government.
She was joined by serving soldiers, sailors and air force personnel.
In Glasgow hundreds gathered in George Square for the silence.
Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Rt Rev Sheilagh Kesting, said that despite the commemorations, killing continues in too many places on earth.
"Remembrance Day presents us with the opportunity to stop in the midst of all that preoccupies us to remember the names, the cost in human life, the grieving of so many people," she said.
