United Kingdom offers European Union military support and security partnership post-Brexit

He will call for countries that are outside the eurozone and the Schengen passport-free area to join, they added. Indeed, leaked minutes of a meeting between national diplomats and Juncker's abrasive chief of staff, Martin Selmayr, suggest that the Commission will propose "more Schengen. more banking union. more Eurozone. and a prospect for enlargement".

Turkey, like other accession candidates, "must give the rule of law, justice and fundamental rights utmost priority", Juncker said.

The 62-year-old Juncker has two years left in office as head of the EU's powerful executive to ensure that his legacy is not limited to the departure of one of the European Union's largest states.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday said he would seek powers to screen foreign takeovers in Europe's strategic sectors, amid concern about investment by China.

Negotiations between the United Kingdom and European Union are continuing although the latest round of talks, due to begin on Monday, have been put back a week to allow "more time for consultation".

But he said there had to be reciprocity in trade deals: "We have to get as much as much as we give".

"If a foreign, state-owned, company wants to purchase a European harbour, part of our energy infrastructure or a defence technology firm, this should only happen in transparency, with scrutiny and debate", Juncker said.

Florida will challenge them on the ground, so we will see what the front seven is about by game's end. Florida won that game 16-10 and feelings between the two schools remain strained.

German concerns were sparked by recent acquisitions in the tech sector, most notably household goods maker Midea's takeover of industrial robotics firm Kuka a year ago.

It calls for the protection of "the environmental integrity of the European Union emission trading system" in response to worries that Britain could fail to reach at least a transitional trade deal with the European Union before its scheduled exit in March 2019.

Mr Juncker said the European Union is open for trade and since a year ago "partners all over the world are knocking at our door in order to sign trade agreements with us". Stop insulting our member states by comparing their leaders to fascists and Nazis. Let us make the most of the moment: "catch the wind in our sails", he said.

The European Commission would also outline a new migrant deportation policy by the end of the month, and called on states to step up sending back migrants who do not meet refugee protection status.

Juncker ruled out for the "foreseeable future" Turkey's membership bid, due to the post-coup crackdown by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Asked if Mrs May backed Mr Juncker's proposals for closer integration, the spokesman said: "This was a speech about the future of the EU".

"Cyberattacks are sometimes more unsafe for the stability of democracies and economies than guns and tanks", he said.
