EU's Juncker wants bigger global role for euro

EU's Juncker wants bigger global role for euro”

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

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will say on Wednesday that Britain should not expect EU negotiators to soften demands as they try to conclude a Brexit divorce treaty but he will reaffirm an offer of a close future partnership, a senior EU official said.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, would not have had a completely positive message about Romania, had he mentioned the country in the State of the Union speech, he told Digi24 in an interview.

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.

He also called for building reciprocal relationships between the European Union and Africa, including a free trade pact. "We should never forget that the patriotism of the XXI century is two-fold, both European and national and they are not mutually exclusive".

People in Ireland could be changing their clocks for the last time next year after a new proposal to scrap daylight savings entirely.

"We must be able to ensure that terrorists will be prosecuted across Europe, across borders, because terrorists know no borders", said Juncker.

He said: "I hope it will have some strong recommendations, that the platforms will be asked to meet on greater transparency of funding of political advertising, sponsored content, stopping content being circulated by mechanical means rather than human beings". This innovative initiative has managed to revive the economies of the member states and create new jobs.

The European Union is pushing ahead with legislation to require the take-down of terrorist content online within one hour.

This included finding solidarity in the face of a core member leaving the Union, in the case of Brexit, but also the hard terrain of disciplining member states who appeared to be running counter to European values, as in the case of Poland and, most recently, Hungary.

Juncker said he hoped that a free trade deal could nonetheless be agreed upon with the United Kingdom, which he said would always remain a very close neighbour and partner in political, economic and security terms.

Mr Juncker also said the European Union will always show "loyalty and solidarity" with Ireland on the issue of its border with Northern Ireland. And to love Europe is to love the nations."Unchecked nationalism is riddled with poison and deceit".

The Commission has already started a rule-of-law procedure, called Article 7, against Poland because of concerns over the independence of the country's judiciary. The new rules would make political parties and organizations liable for fines of up to 5% of their annual budget if they are found in violation of European Union privacy laws in an effort to influence the outcome of European Union elections.
