EUROPEAN UNION LEADER WARNS OF DIVISION IN BLOC
The head of the European Union’s executive body warned Wednesday that the alliance faces unprecedented division over a se- ries of policy disputes highlighted by the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the bloc in June.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker fretted that the U.K.’s separation is only one sign of disagreement that could pull apart the bloc’s remaining 27 member nations.
He named problems, including high unemployment, public debt, “the huge challenge of integrating refugees” and threats to security stemming from recent terror attacks.
