    STRASBOURG - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker delivered his State of the Union address at a plenary session in Strasbourg on Wednesday, urging the European Union to speak with a united voice.
    "Europe succeeds when it speaks with one voice," Juncker said.
    "We proved this when relentlessly defending the Paris Agreement on climate change," he said.
    "Let us not slide back into the incoherence of competing and parallel national diplomacies," he said.
    "Europe diplomacy must be conducted in the singular," he said. "I would like us to reject unhealthy nationalism and embrace enlightened patriotism," Juncker said.
    "Patriotism is a virtue. Unchecked nationalism is riddled with both poison and deceit," he said.
    "I love Europe still and shall do so forever more".
