Jean-Claude Juncker: EU is facing existential crisis
In his address to European parliament, president of the European commission will announce plans to unite Europe

The European Union is facing an existential crisis, the president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, will say on Wednesday, as he announces a raft of economic and security plans in the search for common ground in the wake of the British vote to leave.

In his annual state of the union address to the European parliament, Juncker will say commonality between EU member states has never been so low, with governments everywhere quicker to say what they don’t want from Brussels rather than work together.

The EU executive hopes to find the elusive common ground with a plan to boost the EU’s infrastructure fund by increasing its value to €500bn (£425bn). Juncker will also press for speedy implementation of a recently agreed law to create an EU border and coastguard to ensure better control of migrants arriving from the Middle East and Africa.

Jean-Claude Juncker: EU is facing existential crisis Empty Brexit not the end of European Union, Juncker says

Brexit not the end of European Union, Juncker says
The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, sought on Wednesday to rally support for the European Union, saying the bloc battered by the UK Brexit referendum was not about to break up despite its existential crisis.

In setting out the Commission's plans for the first time since the UK voted to exit the EU on June 23, Juncker highlighted the British referendum as a warning that the EU faces a battle for survival against nationalism in Europe.

"The European Union doesn't have enough union," Juncker told the European Parliament in Strasbourg. "There are splits out there and often fragmentation exists ... That is leaving scope for galloping populism," he said.
