'EU in danger of falling apart'

FRENCH Prime Minister Manuel Valls says the European Union is "in danger of falling apart” unless it works harder to stimulate growth and employment and heed citizens' concerns.

Mr Valls said France and Germany - for decades the axis around which the EU revolved - must help refocus the bloc to tackle an immigration crisis, lack of solidarity between member states, Britain's looming exit and terrorism.

He said France has to continue to open up its economy, not least by cutting corporate tax, while Germany and the whole EU must stimulate job creation, as well as boosting defence.
