Juncker says Europe must speak with one voice

Prime Minister Theresa May is scrambling to salvage her Brexit blueprint

Prime Minister Theresa May is scrambling to salvage her Brexit blueprint

"One hour is the decisive time window, when the greatest damage can take place", European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told the European Parliament during his state of the union address Wednesday.

And he'll poke worldwide locations to present up their national vetoes in some areas of global policy.

In light of these elements, the European Commission has concluded that there is no point for Brussels to keep regulating seasonal time changes and that Member States should be free to decide whether they want to be in summertime or wintertime and handle the matter at national level, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity.

According to Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans, the EU's new proposals will support the efforts of Member States to face their challenges: "The [proposals] will ensure European Union solidarity is effectively delivered on the ground - whenever and wherever needed".

12 million new jobs have been created in Europe since 2014, according to Juncker, and even if the 14.8 percent youth unemployment rate is too high, he said, it is the lowest it has been since 2000.

Juncker renewed calls for states to push ahead in developing an European Union defense capability independent of the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance and to embrace Africa through investment and a sweeping new free trade area - part of a strategy to curb the flow of poor African migrants to the EU.

Juncker said that he spoke with African leaders including president Paul Kagame of Rwanda who affirmed that aid relations should be replaced with "reciprocal commitments" in investment and trade.

One reporter covering Jean-Claude Juncker's keynote address said a "sudden" and "louder, deafening set of applause" came through the PA system, without members in the room "doing anything different".

Boosting the role of the euro as a reserve currency would also create a means of skirting U.S. sanctions that it disagrees with, such as those slapped back on Tehran by Trump when he pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year in the face of bitter European opposition. "I don't", Junker said.

Mr Juncker acknowledged that the United Kingdom will always be a "very close neighbour" and proposed a free-trade area between the two. We continue to be very concerned by the developments in some of our Member States. The European Union is a guarantor of peace.

In an apparent attack on the Leave movement, Juncker said member states of the European Union should "say "no" to unhealthy nationalism" which is "riddled with poison and deceit".

Among the toughest issues left to solve is how to avoid a disruptive new UK-EU land border on the island of Ireland. And to love Europe is to love the nations."Unchecked nationalism is riddled with poison and deceit". "Article 7 must be applied whenever the rule of law is threatened", he said.
