BRUSSELS (AP) ' The head of the European Commission says more unification is critical to the EU's survival.

Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Union's executive arm, says without "more unification," there will be "more fragmentation." He is giving his state of the union address in Strasbourg, France, on Wednesday.

"I think this is going to be a baptism of fire for a whole generation," Barroso says.



However, he asserts that the EU can summon the leadership and the political will to come up with overall solutions to its crises, which involve the common currency and the borderless travel area.
