EC chief Juncker: 10,000 more border guards for European Union

14 September 2018

Addressing the rise of far right groups in Europe, Juncker says the 28-nation grouping must say no to unhealthy nationalism.

"Let us show the European Union a bit more respect and stop dragging its name though the mud". "President Juncker has recognized that climate change is already wreaking havoc in Europe, but failed to acknowledge that to protect its citizens the European Union needs to significantly scale up its climate action", CAN Europe Director Wendel Trio said, noting that the new energy targets which translate into 45% emission cuts by 2030 are only the starting point for the real discussion on how the European Union can met the targets of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. This Alliance, as we envision it, would help create up to 10 million jobs in Africa in the next 5 years alone.

In discussing migration, Juncker said that Europe needed to continue investing in trade with Africa, pointing out that 36% of Africa's trade was with the EU.

Populist, nationalist and eurosceptic forces have gained ground in many countries, and the polls for the European parliament could well bring in more of Juncker's opponents to rock the boat just as he tries to consolidate what he sees as real successes in restoring forward momentum to the European project.

Jean Claude Juncker has re-affirmed the commitment of the member states in standing with Ireland on the border issue. Brussels and the member states remained united and determined to resist British ideas they fear would let it keep some benefits of the European Union single market while avoiding the costs. "Ad-hoc solutions are not adequate, we need more solidarity and it must be organised".

"You wouldn't get away with handing out fliers inciting terrorism on the streets of our cities - and it shouldn't be possible to do it on the internet, either", European Union security commissioner Julian King said in a statement.

However, Juncker stressed that the United Kingdom would always be a very close neighbour and partner in political, economic and security terms. Too many of our journalists are intimidated, attacked or even murdered.

"It will not be the commission that will stand in the way". "Article 7 must be applied when the rule of law is threatened".

"Judgements from the Court of Justice must be respected and implemented".

Poland, which has broken ranks by suggesting in a closed-door meeting of the remaining 27 European Union states that they may have to pick between a tough stance on Ireland and having any deal with Britain, also sent a positive signal to London. "Respecting the rule of law and abiding by Court decisions are not optional", Juncker said.
