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.
