I stick with the opinion that it was a correct decision after the fall of communism.

Facebook responded, saying "There is no place for terrorism on Facebook, and we share the goal of the European Commission to fight it, and believe that it is only through a common effort across companies, civil society and institutions that results can be achieved".

"Such content not only creates significantly negative impacts on individuals and society at large, but it also reduces the trust of users on the internet and affects the business models and reputation of those companies affected", the European Union said.

"Arrivals have been drastically reduced - down 97 percent in the Eastern Mediterranean and 80 percent in the Central Mediterranean", the European Commission president said, adding, "EU operations have helped rescue over 690,000 people at sea since 2015".

The original proposal from May 2016 aims to transform the existing European Asylum Support Office into a fully-fledged European Union Agency for Asylum with an enhanced mandate and considerably expanded tasks.

Juncker proposed increasing the number of border guards to 10,000 by 2020, while opening the door to legal migration from African nations, stressing that Europe needed qualified workers.

Juncker said that another priority for the European Union should be the protection of the free press. Let us defend our way of life, our way of being.

The president of the Commission believes that the time is "critical" while the global context has become more unpredictable with an american president Donald Trump who preaches protectionism and did not hesitate to withdraw from worldwide agreements.

"Whenever Europe speaks as one, we can impose our position on others".

"This solidarity must be provided by member states if they want to retain the Schengen area without internal borders".

The proposal also sets up a framework for strengthened co-operation between hosting service providers, European Union states and Europol.

Where they now exist, they must be removed. But these have all been voluntary guidelines with the looming threat of enforcing "necessary legislation" if tech companies don't shape up. "We are out of time".

Africa does not need charity, it needs true and fair partnership.

The priorities set at the start of Jean-Claude Juncker's term as President of the European Commission have been fulfilled, Head of the European Commission's Representation in Bulgaria Ognian Zlatev told Focus Radio. Today, we are proposing a new Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs between Europe and Africa.
