Juncker Encourages Western Balkans On EU Membership, Criticizes Turkey

UK to offer EU deals on foreign policy and joint military operations UK says it may still join EU military missions after Brexit

While Juncker can expect a generally warm reception in the European Parliament, a broadly federalist body with the noisy exception of dedicated anti-EU parties, the test of whether his proposals translate into action will be the reactions in the coming months of national leaders in the 27 member states.

But as James Walsh, policy lead: Engagement, EU and Regulation at PLSA explains, the passing of the Bill shows that for EU pensioners at least, an agreement on export of state pensions is ready to be formally rubber stamped.

Jean-Claude Juncker added Europe would "always regret" the Brexit vote, but insisted that "we will keep moving, because Brexit isn't everything".

Speaking in French, German and English, Juncker made it clear that Brexit was not a major issue for him, stating that "we will move on because Brexit isn't everything.

However, the European Parliament has made it clear that, whatever the outcome of the negotiations on the future European Union-United Kingdom relationship, they can not involve any trade-off between internal and external security, on the one hand, and the future economic relationship, on the other hand".

"Europe would be easier to understand if one captain was steering the ship", he argued.

At the same time, European Union officials argue, past attempts by Paris and Berlin to force a lead on integration, such as by Merkel and then president Nicolas Sarkozy at the height of the euro zone crisis in 2011, failed to gain traction.

The commission president, however, did not support the idea of a euro area budget and eurozone-parliament. "More Europe in every single direction and all to be done without the consent of the people", Farage told the floor.

He said trade talks should be opened with Australia and New Zealand - saying that he wanted deals to be struck by the time he leaves office in 2019.

"We need to get the EU's house in order before there can even be a discussion on centralizing even further", said Ryszard Legutko, a PiS MEP. He also foresees a "fully-fledged" defence union by 2025.

This particular announcement was met with positive comments from the three major European Union members.

During his defiant speech, Juncker demanded the bloc's enlargement to the east and the adoption of the euro by every European Union country. Although he said enlargement is not possible under his mandate, he argued that the accession process must continue.

"Our Union is not a State but it is a community of law".

"East to west: Europe must breathe with both lungs".

After fierce criticism from Britain over inefficiency in the EU, Juncker proposed that his role as president of the European Commission be merged with that of the European Council.
